    Comment: I haven’t hiked the PCT, but I’m happy to help out folks traveling through the beautiful North Cascades. I live 70 miles (~1.5 hour drive) west of Rainy Pass/Hwy 20 (mile 2600). My home is walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants, laundromat, post office, library, bakery, hardware store, motel and bus line. I don’t have a ton of space in my cabin, but there’s plenty of room to camp in the yard. There are friendly cats and dogs running around. The REI in Bellingham is 47 miles away (1 hour by car, 2.5 hours by bus). Marie 360-202-6548 [email protected]

    Comment: There is a Hiker’s Hut at my home, with the Mexican room, which leads to the Canadian room with kitchenette. Upstairs in the loft are the sleeping quarters as well as under the pines outside. Ravensong’s Roost is by the junction Highway 20 and Lost River Road to Mazama Store. You can there via Rainy Pass or Harts Pass. Ravensong, a veteran PCTer from 1976, offers information regarding early winter safety and alternate routes to get to Canadian border. Mazama, is the the northernmost town on the PCT and the place to go to get warmed up and geared up as the North Cascades quickly change to winter conditions. – [email protected] – Carolyn Burkhart

    Comment: We are both avid hikers. We’ve done sections of the PCT, part of the AT and last year thru hiked the Wonderland Trail. We regularly stock a cooler with drinks and snacks at the Urich cabin at Government Meadows. We have done laundry for people staying over a few days, have contacted friends and family since there is little cell service in the area, and have even contacted law enforcement when needed. We had an impromptu engagement party of beer and pizza for a couple thru hiking when a relative contacted us and let us know they were in the area. When we are not on the trail ourselves, we could provide transportation from Chinook pass into Greenwater or Enumclaw. Tel: 360-663-0810

    Comment: My husband and I live on the west shore of Tahoe and can assist hikers in South Lake Tahoe to the south and near Donner/Boreal area near Highway 80 into Truckee to the north. We are able to host and provide a safe place to zero out for a day or two, fill up on some home cooked meals, get some laundry done and get a hot shower and rides to medical if necessary. We never let anyone leave without a generous supply of our famous oatmeal scotchie cookies, a cold pop, a candy bar and a ham and cheese sandwich on white bread. This next year, due to popular demand, we’ll include a piece of fruit in that go pack. The only thing we ever ask in return is that while you’re here, that you check in with your family to let them know you’re ok. We do have a Border collie named Addie who will expect to be petted so please no one with pets. We are first come, first dibs in the guest room, but we have a pretty good sized deck and air beds can handle overflow.

I do not keep a set schedule, but if I know there will be hikers coming through I try to be there- mostly mid week. I do not provide rides to Cabazon.

    Subject: Trail angel PCT Message Body:
    We have helped hikers 3 times even though we are in Temecula Ca. I picked up a lady from Germany and took her to the Urgent care, got her prescriptions, took her to a store to get some supplies. She stayed in our guest house for a night. I fed her dinner and breakfast then took her back to the trail. Had a young man I picked up twice. Took him to REI to get new boots, let him stay in our guest house 2 days took him back to the trail. Picked him up again and took him to our friends cabin in Big Bear. He stayed there a few days then went back to the trail. We offered our property for another person to park their motorcycle in our garage for a week this year. We can help in those kind of instances mostly in the Warner Springs, Idyllwild or Big Bear area.

We will there on weekends starting early March through May. Chairs, recharge station, cold drinks, burgers/brats, salad, first aid (we may be joined several times by the Nursing club from the community college where I teach) and drives into Julian if needed.

  1. People should be advised that Santiam Pass Hwy 20, Oregon) is an ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE place to get a hitch!!! I have stood out in the blazing sun now for over an hour, no luck – even though I take off my hat and sunglasses and smile. I just read online that there is a Eugene to Bend bus that goes once a day, but I just missed it. I need to get new shoes at the REI in Bend. There should be a pullout near the trail, but there ISN’T …
