About the Pacific Crest Trail: The Pacific Crest Trail, or PCT, is the longest completed trail in the world at 2,650 miles. The trail begins at the U.S./Mexico border near Campo, California, and winds its way through California, Oregon and Washington to its northern terminus at the U.S./Canada border near Manning Park in British Columbia, Canada.
