National Geographic Trails Illustrated PCT Maps

The Pacific Crest Trail Map Pack Bundle of Oregon includes 2 Topographic Map Guides that cover the entire PCT as it traverses the incredible terrain of the Beaver State. The maps start at the lowest point of the PCT, Cascade Locks, where it passes over the Columbia River, and continue past the many volcanic cones of the Cascade Range. The Oregon South booklet ends at the border of California in the Siskiyou Mountains.

The PCT spans 2,650 miles from the Canadian border, through Washington, Oregon, and California to the southern terminus at the Mexican border. The famous trail crosses some of the most wild and scenic landscapes of the western U.S., including six national parks, 25 national forests, 48 wilderness areas, the volcanic Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest, the snowcapped Sierra Nevada, and the Mojave and Sonoran deserts.

Each PCT Topographic Map Guide includes detailed topographic maps at a scale of almost 1 inch = 1 mile. Each page is centered on the PCT and overlaps with the adjacent pages so there is little chance of getting lost. Along the bottom of each page is a trail profile that shows the distance between camping areas, trailheads, and other points of interest. The map and trail profile provide a step by step visual guide to hiking the trail, mile by rugged mile.

Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The Columbia River delineates much of Oregon’s northern boundary with Washington, while the Snake River delineates much of its eastern boundary with Idaho. The 42° north parallel delineates the southern boundary with California and Nevada.

Oregon is one of the most geographically diverse states in the U.S., marked by volcanoes, abundant bodies of water, dense evergreen and mixed forests, as well as high deserts and semi-arid shrublands. Mount Hood, a stratovolcano, at 11,249 feet elevation is the state’s highest point. Oregon’s only national park, Crater Lake National Park, comprises the caldera surrounding Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States. The state is also home to the single largest organism in the world, Armillaria ostoyae, a fungus that runs beneath 2,200 acres of the Malheur National Forest.

Because of its diverse landscapes and waterways, Oregon’s economy is largely powered by various forms of agriculture, fishing, and hydroelectric power. Oregon is also the top timber producer of the contiguous United States, and the timber industry dominated the state’s economy in the 20th century. Technology is another one of Oregon’s major economic forces.

Oregon is 295 miles north to south at longest distance, and 395 miles east to west. With an area of 98,381 square miles, Oregon is slightly larger than the United Kingdom. It is the ninth largest state in the United States. Crater Lake National Park, the state’s only national park, is the site of the deepest lake in the United States at 1,943 feet.

Yosemite Valley represents only one percent of the park area, but this is where most visitors arrive and stay. The Tunnel View is the first view of the Valley for many visitors and is extensively photographed. El Capitan, a prominent granite cliff that looms over Yosemite Valley, is one of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the world because of its diverse range of climbing routes in addition to its year-round accessibility. Granite domes such as Sentinel Dome and Half Dome rise 3,000 and 4,800 feet, respectively, above the valley floor at 4000 feet.

The high country of Yosemite contains beautiful areas such as Tuolumne Meadows, Dana Meadows, the Clark Range, the Cathedral Range, and the Kuna Crest. The Sierra crest and the Pacific Crest Trail run through Yosemite, with peaks of red metamorphic rock, such as Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs, and granite peaks, such as Mount Conness. Mount Lyell is the highest point in the park, standing at 13,120 feet. The Lyell Glacier is the largest glacier in Yosemite National Park and is one of the few remaining in the Sierra Nevada today.
Yosemite Books
The park has three groves of ancient giant sequoia trees; the Mariposa Grove (200 trees), the Tuolumne Grove (25 trees), and the Merced Grove (20 trees). Many of the trees in Mariposa Grove were recently toppled by severe winds in 2020; Groves may be closed due to cleanup efforts.

Half Dome Trail Map

Hiking to Half Dome is very long day trip, on foot, uphill half the way, with excessive elevation gain and loss. Leave toward the trailhead before day break and get back after sundown. No kidding: 17 miles round trip. You must be in excellent shape to tackle this trail, as it involves discipline and strength. Super scenic waterfalls and viewpoints all along the way. Some prefer to do an overnight trek w/ backpack, food and permits.

Half Dome Hiking Map

Half Dome Yosemite

Yosemite National Park

The geology of the Yosemite area is characterized by granitic rocks and remnants of older rock. About 10 million years ago, the Sierra Nevada was uplifted and then tilted to form its relatively gentle western slopes and the more dramatic eastern slopes. The uplift increased the steepness of stream and river beds, resulting in the formation of deep, narrow canyons. About one million years ago, snow and ice accumulated, forming glaciers at the higher alpine meadows that moved down the river valleys. Ice thickness in Yosemite Valley may have reached 4,000 feet during the early glacial episode. The downslope movement of the ice masses cut and sculpted the U-shaped valley that attracts so many visitors to its scenic vistas today.
