Meet PCTA Volunteer and Thru-Hiker Tammy Turner

Welcome to the home page for the Mount Hood Chapter of the Pacific Crest Trail Association. Our volunteers maintain the 217 miles of PCT between Midway Meadows south of Washington's Goat Rocks Wilderness and Breitenbush Lake north of Oregon's Mount Jefferson Wilderness.

Trail work is fun and can be as easy or hard as you wish to make it. Our volunteers range in age from teens to eighties. No experience is necessary; crew leaders will instruct you on the job. Volunteers who participate in two or more work parties earn a free Northwest Forest Pass for the following year.

Join our email distribution list to be informed of upcoming volunteer trail maintenance projects. If you have any questions, please contact our volunteer coordinator, .

Check out the map of the revised Mount Hood Wilderness.

Our segment on Grant's Getaways made it into the 2014 year end review! We were the last piece, which must mean we were the best. Our volunteers are the best.
