It was a dark and stormy night... Just kidding, the whole weekend was dark and stormy! But that didn't stop hundreds of PCT loyalists from joining in the riotous party that is PCT Days. Read on to hear more about our adventures and mishaps at PCT Days...
Thru-hikers on the PCT have hiked over 2000 miles by the time they cross Oregon. The main pack is coming through our neck of the woods right now. If you want to get to know some of the hardy souls that make this epic journey, now is the time to get out on the trail. Next Adventure Outdoor School led a guided backpacking tour for a section hike along the PCT to learn the ins and outs of long-distance hiking.
We have another 5-day backpacking trip along the PCT planned in September, and you can still join us.
And don't miss PCT Days in Cascade Locks on the Columbia River this weekend (8/28-30), where you can meet the thru-hikers and see the latest in ultra-light gear.

What are the 7 wonders of Oregon? They are the amazing natural spaces you can discover here in Oregon: majestic Mt. Hood, the incredible Columbia River Gorge, the awesome Oregon Coast, the pretty Painted Hills, spectacular Smith Rock, the wonderful Wallowas, and indescribable Crater Lake.
There is a part in all of us that simply wants to wander. To let loose the ties of an average life and travel through every valley, canyon, and creek to try and find ourselves. We seek this adventure, this baptism in change and it does not disappoint. One of these adventurers, a seeker of the unknown, is Lawrence Newman.
