Pacific Crest Trail Signs

Signs of the Pacific Crest Trail

Looking back through my photos from my Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike in 2016, one thing that stood out is how many photos I took of signs. Whether it’s trail markers, navigational signposts or just some illegible scrawlings on a tree, there’s plenty of reading material for hikers making their way north. Some of them were hilarious, some of them motivating and some of them pretty bizarre, but this collection of weird and wonderful signs pieced together give a surprisingly accurate representation of the experience of hiking the trail.

These are the signs that caught my eye enough for me to get my camera out:

 

One down

 

Only 2643 miles to go

 

Beware of unexploded bombs…

 

…and unfriendly weed farmers

 

Winter is coming

 

Slightly closer

 

A quick McDetour

Not a real jail or gun shop either
