Day & Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Northern California by Wendy Lautner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Instead of guiding travelers through the arduous task of hiking the entire PCT, the goal of this book is to help plan trips that incorporate hiking on the PCT in Northern California, whether hikers have just an afternoon to spare or want to escape for the entire weekend. The author's hike choices most often include the opportunity for a wilderness swim or a summit hike to take in outstanding views. Maps and elevation graphs were carefully produced using GPS data collected by the author while out on the trail.

Author Biography

At around the turn of the century, Wendy Lautner was a recovering pre-med major at Humboldt State University in Northern California. Having just recently returned from a study-abroad program in Central America, the idea of sitting in one place for too long seemed hard to fathom. Discussing this dilemma with her father via email he suggested she try journalism because, "then you can travel and do all kinds of fun things and get paid well for it." While she still hasn't quite mastered the "getting paid well" part, Wendy took her dad's advice and signed up for the school newspaper. Since then she has worked at Paddler Magazine, wrote sports coverage in the adrenaline hub of Lake Tahoe area for the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza, had a stint as the newspaper editor at the Lincoln News Messenger serving Sacramento's up-and-coming bedroom community to the north, and has written for heaps of other publications, Web sites and the like on topics ranging from recreation, travel and environmental issues. Currently, she is the assistant editor for where her basic job duties include eating out at nice restaurants, attending concerts, hiking, mountain biking, parasailing, writing, and a decent amount of computer time as well. Catch up with Wendy at where she runs a blog called the Tahoe Tracker.
