Pacific Crest Trail Section 1 is a 2.9 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Campo, CA that offers scenic views and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
The start of the Pacific Crest Trail on the Mexican border, at Campo, CA. The journey of a thousand miles (or 2650) begins with a single step.
The southern terminus of the PCT, this is the starting place for many hiking adventures.
I was reluctant to hike the southern part of the PCT because of the heat and lack of water but I was pleasantly surprised. I started in Campo April 21 and stopped in at the ADZPCTKO (kickoff party), went to some talks about finding water and set out on what turned out to be a beautiful walk. Everything was in bloom and water wasn’t that big of a problem with a little planning. I walked 558 miles to Tehachapi and had a wonderful time.
