The PCT ends at the border. That's where you hike your last steps. However, the monument on the border is in the absolute middle of nowhere. Once you reach the monument, you have a few choices:
- Turn around and hike 30 miles south to Harts Pass and hope someone drives the dirt road.
- Turn around and hike 50 miles south to Rainy Pass and hitch into a town.
- Continue on and hike 8.81 miles into Canada, to the Manning Park Resort (if you've obtained the necessary permits ahead of time, and are carrying them and your passport).
Now, I've done my homework, so I have my passport and authorization from the Canadian government to enter Canada via the unmanned border crossing at the PCT. So northward I go!
