PCT Backpacking Trek (Section 3) March 14-15

Post date: Feb 24, 2020 6:11:51 AM

Hello T777 Scouts and Families,

We are continuing on our Pacific Crest Trail treks, 2 sections done and onto the 3rd one!


This trek will cover the third segment of the PCT in San Diego, from Burnt Rancheria Campground to Pedro Fages Monument in the Anza Borrego State Park along the sunrise highway.


Saturday March 14th and returning Sunday March 15th.

The plan is to be back early enough on Sunday afternoon to ensure we can all attend the Micah Haney tribute BBQ that Sunday afternoon.

Sign up by March 2nd. Mandatory pre-trek meeting Monday, Mar 9th.


This trek will cover 20 miles over 2 days and will have significant distance of 12 miles on the first day!

This stretch will take us quickly up over Mount Laguna peak and then downhill towards Anza Borrego dessert area along sunrise highway. Participants must have previous backpacking experience and be prepared for the elements.

For scouts that participated in the previous sections, this will take us another 20 miles toward Canada. But even if you missed the first two treks, you can still join in and earn the San Diego County High Adventure PCT Patch and strip for section 3. However, only 14 spots so sign up early

Trek form attached.

Trek forms, medical forms A/B and payment by Mar 2nd to me in person or drop off at 7947 Sitio Solana, Carlsbad.
