Pacific Crest Trail 2016 Virtual Water Report

New video, updated 3/1/16

For many years the Pacific Crest Trail Water Report has been one of the most useful presentations for hikers attending ADZPCTKO. The organizers of ADZPCTKO are taking a break this year so we have turned to the internet for this virtual Water Report presentation.

Slides used in the presentation can be downloaded as Power Point format here or as PDF format here. (slides updated on 3/11/16).

It’s early in the hiking season and things may change so check back frequently for updates. We plan on doing several live sessions and updated presentations soon.

This is our first virtual Water Report so let us know of any suggestions or questions in the comments below.
