The Best Thru-Hiking Movies – EVER! – Keith Foskett

It’s January. Just in case you hadn’t noticed.

That strange period between December and February where nothing much happens except drizzle, in England at least.

I find myself dreaming of long, hot thru-hikes. Shortly followed by scanning Youtube to find who filmed their hikes last year.

It’s great reading about thru-hiking and where the coolest trails are. Books are wonderful at portraying images, so the reader can imagine. This is the beauty of the written word.However, I don’t know about you, but I like visuals as well.

My name is Helen and I will be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2019 starting around 20th April along with a team mate. This trek will involve carrying everything you need in a backpack, walking around 15 – 20 miles a day and wild camping throughout. There will be resupply stops every week or so in small towns just off the trail. The trail runs for 2,650 miles from the Mexican border to the Canadian border and will take around 5 months to complete.
