2,660 Miles: Backpacking Full ‘Pacific Crest Trail’

Follow life-long friends, Colin and Casey, as they hike the 2,660-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada.


This 40-minute documentary — ‘Only the Essential: Pacific Crest Trail Documentary’ — focuses on the effect that an extended stint in the wilderness has while traveling at the “speed of a human.”

All of the footage in this film was captured by thru-hikers and is an authentic look into what hiking the world’s premiere long-distance trail is all about.
