This is not a beautiful hiking video | A Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike

2016 I took a plane from Vienna, Austria to California to hike the Pacific Crest Trail – a 2650 miles footpath from Mexico to Canada. This is my 5 month journey – with all ups and downs.

    When i tell people I walked 100 miles in Nijmegen, Holland in the 4=day-march they think I’m full of shit and look at me as if I’m lyimg. I wonder what they would think if some thru hiker tells them his or her story.

    Beautiful indeed. “Get to the chopper”

  9. Emir Smajic on December 21, 2019 at 3:54 am

    I was always wondering ‘what kind of people’ can press dislike on such a great video like this?

  10. Fulvio D. on December 21, 2019 at 3:56 am

    i hope in a future to do this trail

  11. Luke Pearsall on December 21, 2019 at 3:56 am

    I love this video, the only thing that bums me out was the stuff hanging on the Joshua Trees! A single human touch can kill a Joshua Tree and they take hundreds of years to grow that big!

    It’s awesome , great

    So incredible man. 2 years ago this video introduced me to the pct, and for 2 years its all i have been thinking about. After graduating school and saving up money for a year, i sit here tonight, on the night the permits open, just jumping in my seat in excitement. Thankyou for introducing this trail to me and so many others. ❤️

  31. Heather Dawn Howes on December 21, 2019 at 4:30 am

    Amazing Video!! Thank You so much for giving Me such a view into the Trail I aim to Hike!! Really…Very Well Done ❤️👍🏼😁🙌🏼

  32. Mike Brown on December 21, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Of all the PCT videos and films I’ve seen (and that is many!), this is easily amongst the best, if not the best. Short yet wonderfully evocative and moving. Peter, you have a gift. Truly inspirational. Thank you

  33. Gary Greenfield on December 21, 2019 at 4:35 am

    Epic adventure, beautifully captured. Kudos!

  34. alwaysuseless on December 21, 2019 at 4:35 am

    Beautiful video, brilliant condensation! Really captured the experience! Loved the quotes! *_Vielen Dank!_* The dirt you hike on in the desert can be almost twice as hot as the ambient air. 90 F/ 32 C vs. trail temp 155 F/ 68 C.
    The trek: 2650 miles in 135 days = 0.8+ mph (1.2+ km per hr). A snail’s pace. 🙂
    The video: 2650 miles in 9 minutes 29 seconds = 16,766+ mph (26982+ km per hr). More than 29 times the speed of sound!
    Your journey took about 20,500 times longer than this video.
    *_Die Wanderung dauerte etwa 20.500 mal länger als dieses Video._*

  35. Lotte on December 21, 2019 at 4:35 am

    Stunning. It made me teary eyed.

  36. N M on December 21, 2019 at 4:38 am

    This is trail where movie "wild" take place

  41. Blue Bird on December 21, 2019 at 4:41 am

    This is definitely something I’m putting at the top of my bucket list. This seems like the meaning of life itself.

  42. Patrik M on December 21, 2019 at 4:42 am

    Super, ganz gut gemacht! Servus aus Colorado!

  43. Diana L. on December 21, 2019 at 4:42 am

    Clickbait! It was a beautiful video.😡

    Loved it!

  44. Lily Whetsell on December 21, 2019 at 4:42 am

    I feel like I want to do this someday but isn’t hitchhiking scary? I mean you wouldn’t know but especially for a woman, I think. I know most people are nice but that’s still kinda scary. And wild animals. I really want to hike more and get over my fears.

  45. AeroviewUSA on December 21, 2019 at 4:43 am

    EXCELLENT Video! Thanks for sharing your adventure! Really nice editing and narration as well

  46. Anamaria on December 21, 2019 at 4:44 am

    wow, just wow! not only is this an amazing video, but the hike itself seems out of this world! thank you for sharing your experience, this surely inspired me to add it to my bucket list and hopefully cross it off one day!

  47. spatzierer on December 21, 2019 at 4:46 am
