Welcome to my blog about hiking the Pacific Northwest Trail.

I hiked the trail in 2013 solo, starting at the eastern border of Glacier National Park  on July 16th and finishing at Cape Alava on the Pacific Ocean on September 18th. I kept a blog here on this website, and have some notes for future hikers.

  1. Katherine,
    I’ve been thinking about hiking the PNT as a solo female, this year or some year soon. I would love to talk to you if you’re in phone range anytime soon.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Michelle,
      If you would be interested in allowing another single female to hike along,
      let me know… I have been contemplating doing this hike for sometime, but
      do not relish doing it alone. I don’t feel it would be safe to be alone….

      Would you welcome another for safety and company?

      Just a suggestion….Let me know!! We can start a dialogue!

  2. What felt like more of an adventure, doing the Great Divide ride or the PNWST? I’m considering both this summer? If you could only do one, which would it be? Does the Divide feel like you’re in wilderness and away from people/cars etc.?

    • The PNT felt more wild to me than the Great Divide. Part of that is the necessity of keeping mountain bikes out of the wilderness areas. The most tedious parts of the PNT–long road walks through logging lands–are similar to the kinds of roads you’ll ride on a lot while on the gGreat Divide. That said, the Great Divide is a lovely trip too, but it feels a bit more in touch with civilization.

    • Hmmm, interesting question. I don’t remember picking up my permit in person anywhere. I do remember having one. Is it possible to have it mailed? Sorry to not be more helpful. Twas a long time ago 🙂
