...marks the trail in case of snow covering the trail and makes it easier to spot. Many people have completed the extremely challenging journey of hiking the entire 2,663 miles of trail. You get a patch if you complete the trail and it usually takes about three months, but can take longer or shorter depending on the hiker's endurance. Less than 10% of hikers actually hike the whole trail from Mexico to Canada. The trail also has to offer some of the most beautiful places to hike in the country (see pictures). IMG 1580 IMG 1614 In some places there you will be covered in dense forest and a mile later, you will be above the tree line. The Pacific Crest Trail is something that people should do at least once in their life. It is a great experience and is truly pure Pacific.
