2019 PNTA Strip Maps

The 2019 edition of the PNTA mapset is now available!

Our mapset is revised annually to show the most up-to-date information about the PNT available. To better help all of our users plan trips on the Pacific Northwest Trail, we have developed a set of new Overview Maps which are ideal for trip planning and for “choosing your adventure” by exploring the many popular alternate routes along the trail corridor. And the 2019 edition of our Strip Maps includes crucial new waypoints, updated page notes and new field-verified track files that show the newest realignments to the trail corridor. 

2019 Long Distance Hiker Registration

Major issues, such as trail and road closures affecting access to the Pacific Northwest Trail are logged as Trail Alerts. PNT thru-hikers should check for wildfire closures and fire restrictions before visiting each section of trail. In many areas along the trail, campfires and certain camp stoves may be temporarily or permanently restricted due to risk of wildfire.

For thru-hikers and other PNT users who remain in the field for extended periods of time, the PNTA shares Trail Alerts through a free, plain text email system. Subscribe at the link below.
