“A section of the Pacific Crest Trail that climbs into the mountains from the Bridge of the Gods.”— Samantha Morlan
There are multiple junctions to veer off on to sight see - including Table Top Mountain. Finding a campsite is fairly easy; however, there are a few sections that are campless and force you to move on.
There are two main towns are along the trail, only 10 miles away from their junction (Trout Lake City, White Pass) which are great for a good hot meal and some down time. Water sources are plentiful and usually clean enough for a filter. You'll pass by a few lakes that are fairly dry.
This section ends at the ski resort (White Pass) by Highway 12, which is also the only post office along this section for a supply drop.
