Washington is a dynamic state to say the least. It's amazing how quickly the landscape can change; fires rage in the summer, closing trails and burning huge swaths of forest, bridges get washed away in massive floods, and avalanches knock trees over like matchsticks, taking out entire sections of trail with them. The second edition of Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Washington, by local author Adrienne Schaefer provides hikers with updated trail and road conditions, places to visit in the great mountain towns surrounding them and information on some of the major environmental events that have happened over the past four years, which includes the largest wildfire season in Washington State history. The second edition also includes five new hikes, one of which travels along the glaciated flanks of Glacier Peak through a breathtaking section of the PCT that was closed from 2003-2011.
With new maps, photos, and updated trail information, this guide highlights sections of the PCT in the Columbia River Gorge, Gifford Pinchot National Forest with views of Mount Adams, Mount Rainier National Park, and Pasayten wildernesses. The guide includes ratings for scenery, trail condition, difficulty, solitude, and accessibility for children. In addition, it has driving directions,
Adrienne Schaefer’s love of nature and outdoor pursuits began at a young age, building forts and camping out with her family in the foothills of Washington’s North Cascades. As she got older, her love turned into a lifestyle, and she decided to pursue a career in the outdoor industry.
A bachelor’s degree in outdoor recreation led her to a variety of outdoor-based jobs, including working for the National Park Service and U.S Forest Service as a trail crew member, wildland firefighter, and a climbing ranger on Mt. Rainier. She was also a professional ski patroller for six years and now helps instruct women’s backcountry ski clinics in the North Cascades.
Adrienne currently lives in the quiet community of Winthrop, on the east slopes of the North Cascades. When not working, she enjoys trail running, gardening and sharing her love for the outdoors with her husband and two young boys.
