Why was this site created?
Hiking is one of my favorite activities. When ever I tried to search for trail information I was bombard with sites that wanted me to sign up or sites that had next to useless information. In 2005 I started to create a list of trails in Wordpad and added notes each time I would go on a hike. After a while my list looked better than any of the info I could find on the web. I spent some time learning how to integrate Google Maps and put everything together.

The Pacific Northwest TrailThe Pacific Northwest Trail (PNT), now designated as the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail, is a 1200 mile hiking trail running from the Continental Divide in Montana (connecting it with the Continental Divide Trail), through the northern panhandle of Idaho, to the Pacific coast of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. It traverses the Rocky Mountains, Selkirk Mountains, Pasayten Wilderness, North Cascades, Olympic Mountains, and Wilderness Coast. The trail crosses three National Parks and seven National Forests. The trail was designated a national scenic trail in 2009. The U.S. Department of Agriculture administers the trail.
