Triple Crown Trails - part2 Tour Details

Status: Active
Description: TRIPLE CROWN TRAIL SERIES Pacific Crest Trail Tour (PCT). The Triple Crown Trail series will consist of three separate tours, the Appalachian Trail tour (AT), Continental Divide Trail tour (CDT) and Pacific Crest Trail tour (PCT). The Triple Crown refers to the three major U.S. long-distance hiking trails. The Triple Crown of Hiking is awarded to individuals who hike all 3 trails in their entirety. An award will be issued at the completion of each tour. The PCT is approx. 2,650 miles long. The southern terminus of the PCT is in Campo, Ca. at the Mexico border. The northern terminus is at Manning Park in British Columbia. The trail generally follows the crest of the Sierra Nevada & Cascade mountain ranges. This is a GA tour. There are many small airports with short runways on this tour, including 2 grass strips. Some of the towns on the tour are adjacent to the trail, however, due to the remoteness of the trail, some of the towns are located miles from the trail. Considering all the short runways, Jim recommends using a single engine Cessna type AC or Beech Baron 58 for this GA tour. A big thank you to MEC235 Jim S for building this Triple Crown Tour. BE AWARE: This tour was built in FSX so if you are flying newer sims there might be some airports no longer in the sim. BE AWARE: If you can't find the airport take the leading "K" from the ICAO and you might find it that way.
