White Pass: Backpacking the PCT

Backpacking along the Pacific Coast Trail is among some people’s highest wish lists. Located in southern mid-Washington State, you won’t be disappointed.

Trail Specs:

Total distance 12-13 miles round trip

Elevation gain approximately 1000 ft. 

3 days on the trail, and 2 nights camping in the wilderness.


Day 1: October 14 – Leave the Boise area early Friday morning, and travel about 7-8 hours by car to the trailhead. Hike into the desired location. Either Beush Lake (or at 6 miles) or Pipe Lake (at 7.5 miles) depending on how we feel and the time of day. Elevation gain approximately 1000 ft.

Day 2: October 15 – Stay around camp, hang out, hike further, whatever our hearts desire.

Day 3: October 16 – Wake up early, pack up and head home. Arrive back to the Boise area on Sunday evening

All your cooking needs will be met. You will be required to carry your own gear on your back and share in the load for the group community gear (such as cooking items and food). Along the way, I will be photographing your every move. We will stop and take pictures along the trail at a lot of the picturesque moments and places.

Included in the cost of the trip are 5 images of your choice for digital download only.  Picture packages will be offered at sign-up at a discounted rate and again after the trip is over.
