Section L of the Pacific Crest Trail is the final section of the trail in Washington, and consequently the final section for the entire trail. This section runs 70.3 miles from Highway 20 at Rainy Pass, across the American/Canadian Border, and ends at Highway 3 in Manning Park in British Columbia. Much of this section lies far to the east of the Cascades. As a result, this section receives much less snow than Mt. Baker (one of the snowiest places on the planet), but it can still be snow covered into the late summer.
Along the way this section of trail passes Porcupine Creek; Cutthroat Pass; Granite Pass; Methow Pass; Golden Creek; West Fork Methow River; Glacier Pass; Alpine-garden pass above South Fork Trout Creek; Harts Pass; Buffalo Pass; Windy Pass; Foggy Pass; Jim Pass; Devils Backbone; Holman Pass; alternate PCT route; Hopkins Pass; Castle Pass; Monument 78, United States-Canada Border; Castle Creek; Windy Joe Mountain; old PCT route; and Manning Park Lodge.
Trail length: 70 miles
