About the Ultimate Hike

We're excited to be back on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2022! Join us for 27 miles on the westernmost trail of Hiking's Triple Crown. Our home base will be Big Bear Lake, California where the town itself is worth the trip! Train in one of our official training cities, or train on your own and head west to join us for this perfect destination adventure. You'll have to travel to 10,000 feet for the adventure, but elevation gain/loss on the actual trail puts it right in the middle of our Hikes difficulty-wise. Additional hike distances are available. Speak with your Ultimate Hike staff contact about additional options.
