ADZPCTKO has everything you'd expect at a fine resort:

  • Food. Dinner (Friday and Saturday) and breakfast (Saturday and Sunday) will be dished up at site 14.
  • Entertainment. The gear contest, auction, group photos, announcements to the assembled masses, evening programs, and most other group activities happen around sites 14 and 15. Many slide shows and seminars will be held in the Pavilion. Switchback presents backpacking secrets in Pirate's Lair (site 22).
  • Shopping. Vendors will display their wares in the large field west of site 14.
  • Education. USFS offers information about bear protection and fire safety, and issues campfire permits. PCTA sells maps, dispenses information about the trail, and issues wilderness permits. Other organizations provide additional useful information for long-distance hikers. All can be found in the large field west of site 14.
  • Post Office. USPS will be in site 13 to accept your packages and letters for delivery up the trail or back home. Hours are 10-2 Friday and Saturday.
  • Transportation. Rides to the border and to other points along the trail can be arranged at the parking area southwest of the Pavilion, indicated by the P symbol in the map.
