What permits do you need to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail? When do you apply for them? How much do they cost? What about water sources? How do I know where to camp? What GPS tool should I use?

I answer these questions plus more in this video to help you plan your own thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail or even another long distance hike!
