Best way to hike Pacific Crest Trail is to go in sections

Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015 — While the idea of stepping out of the daily routine of life for four to six months to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada is intriguing, there is no need for such drastic action when you can break the trail into day hikes, overnight hikes and week-long treks. This approach is particularly feasible for those who live in Plumas and Lassen counties because there are many points where the trail crosses roads making it easily accessible.
    Not far from Westwood the trail can be accessed six miles west of Chester off Highway 36. Also within the Almanor Ranger District there is access at Domingo Springs campground about eight miles northwest of Chester, and also at Drakesbad in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Additional access points include Belden in the Feather River Canyon, Bucks Summit on Bucks Lake Road, along the Quincy/La Porte Road and in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area.
