Farther to the west, hikers will find the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650-mile long-distance hike through California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, Canada. It's considered one leg of the Triple Crown of Hiking along with the Appalachian Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. At 5.3 million steps, it's longer than the former but shorter than the latter.
