The Pacific Northwest Trail is a unique pathway that travels through some of the most spectacular and scenic terrain in the United States and connects people and communities of the Pacific Northwest.
The Pacific Northwest Trail begins near the Continental Divide in Glacier National Park and travels more than 1,200 miles through Montana, Idaho, and Washington before reaching its western terminus at the Pacific Ocean near Cape Alava.
The Pacific Northwest Trail travels through rugged, remote wilderness and downtown Main Streets in small communities. In some areas, hundreds of thousands of people enjoy this national treasure each year while in others, only a handful of people walk the trail. Some travel only a few miles, while others complete a “thru-hike” of the entire trail in one season.
