The thought of planning and completing a Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike can be overwhelming. There’s so much to learn: how to resupply, what shoes or gear to buy, how to survive in the desert and snow, etc. “Yogi’s Pacific Crest Trail Handbook” answers all these questions . . . and more.

This valuable planning and hiking resource is written by hikers for hikers. It takes the confusion out of pre-hike planning and on-trail logistics. It is a collection of different opinions from people who have thru-hiked the PCT. This is the stuff we wish we knew before we thru-hiked.

The first half is a collection of tips from previous PCT thru-hikers on a variety of hiking topics such as:

  • Maps and Guidebooks

  • Footwear
  • Packs
  • Shelters
  • Sleeping Systems
  • Ultralight Hiking
  • Desert Advice
  • Sierra Advice
  • Resupply

The second half is the Trail Tips and Town Guide. This section is printed on perforated paper, so you can remove these pages from the bound book and take them with you on the trail. You’ll find:

  • How to get to and from each resupply location
  • Town maps
  • Maildrop info
  • Town info: resupply, lodging, restaurants, ATM, internet, fuel, shower, etc.

Browning Camping, packs, tents, sleeping bags, furniture and air pads

Message from Dennis Brune, Owner of ALPS Mountaineering

Curious about what’s behind Browning Camping? Well, if you have a minute to read the next several paragraphs, I’ll try to give you some background. In 1993, I started ALPS Mountaineering, a small company located in rural east central Missouri, with the mission of “providing more gear for more people”. We offer performance oriented packs, tents, sleeping bags, furniture and air pads. All of our products are “consumer designed” for comfortable enjoyable trips that have tough, durable construction for a lifetime of use, and while the products are great, the prices are even better. I have been working in the outdoor industry since 1978 in a variety of design, sales, and marketing positions. A lot of my prior outdoor experience came from running the Kelty brand, which also marketed packs, tents and sleeping bags. In 1994, Brian, the oldest of our 3 children, was about to enter middle school, so I left Kelty because I wanted to have a more flexible schedule to allow me to be more involved in my family’s activities. If you’d still like to read more about ALPS Mountaineering, you can go to the About ALPS Mountaineering page.
