The 2021 Pacific Crest Trail Hiker Survey is now open for responses – fill it out here!
If you hiked the Pacific Crest Trail this year (2021), as a thru-hiker or section hiker, this survey is for you. It doesn't matter whether you completed the entire PCT (i.e. if you got off early or section hiked), the survey needs your input!
If you are still hiking the PCT, please wait to fill out the survey. Responses will be accepted for the next several months, so don't worry about not being able to fill it out because you are still on the trail.
Answer each to the best of your ability, and don't worry if your answers aren't exact. If a question does not apply to you or you have no response, SKIP THE QUESTION (you can use the up/down arrows to navigate between questions).
For best results, complete on a desktop or laptop computer.
THANK YOU in advance for taking the time to fill this out. Your time and answers are very much appreciated.
