Route: Pacific Crest Trail through WA (WA)

Washington, US

There have been a few reports of times for each of the 3 states through which the PCT passes (CA, OR, WA).  Some PCT thru-hikes/runs might have resulted in faster state times?  What's posted here is what we know for Washington.


Me and my friend David Mitchell are going for the unsupported WA FKT attempt.

On the old site it was discussed that Heather Anderson did it 11 days 3 hrs. We will be using this as our goal for time to beat. 

We will start on the Washington/Oregon line on the bridge of the Gods on July 27th and hope to reach the Northern terminus in 10 days (Aug 5th). I will be using a spot tracker to validate the attempt.

For anyone who would like to follow along I will be posting when I can on my Instagram: @willruspnw. On there I will also have a link to the Spot tracker share page that will be updating our location every hour.

Just for clarification we will actaully be going for the self supported record. Which we believe is 11 days 3hrs. We will walk to our 3 ressuply stops; white pass, snoqulamie and Stevens pass
