Pacific Crest Trail Resupply Locations

My strategy for resupplying along the Pacific Crest Trail involved a combination of buying food along the way, and utilising a bounce box. This is a box containing food and gear I didn’t need to carry at any one time, which I mailed forward to post offices along the trail, collecting the box every 200 miles or so to restock my food supply or exchange pieces of equipment.

Below is my resupply strategy, a list of all locations I posted my bounce box to, as well as estimated dates of arrival, about which I was wildly inaccurate. I ended up completing my thru-hike more than a month earlier than anticipated.

If you have any questions about resupplying and preparing for a PCT thru-hike, please get in touch and I’ll be happy to help.
