Signing Up

WE ARE ALREADY FULL FOR THESE DATES: The nights of April 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, and May 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

BEFORE you fill out the form below, please read the relevant pages of this website, particularly the pages under What to Expect Here and the Covid Policies page.  We want everyone who stays with us to know what to expect and to only come if they’re comfortable with the procedures we will follow.

Once you sign up, EMAIL US at sandiegopct@gmail.com to tell us you have signed up and to provide documentation that you are fully vaccinated and boosted (such as a photo of your official vaccination card).  That way we know to check the spreadsheet and send you a confirmation that all is well.  It also allows us to easily capture your email for future communications.  

For 2022, we will be hosting from April 8 to May 9.  (That means our first day picking up hikers is April 8 and our first ride to the Southern Terminus is April 9.  May 9 is our last ride to the Terminus.  No pick-ups that day.) If you need transportation outside those dates, see the info on our Other Options page.

We are willing to accommodate 20 hikers per night, which means we will have to turn some hikers away.  We feel bad about this, but we can host only that number of hikers safely.  That is the reason for our policy of 1 night for U.S. hikers, and 2 nights for hikers from outside the U.S.

A note about permits: General permit information is on the PCTA website.  Anyone planning to hike more than 500 miles on the PCT should have a PCT Long-Distance Permit.  If you plan to use local permits instead of the long-distance permit, see Yogi’s information.  We expect each of the hikers we host to respect the permit system and start their hike on the date of their permit.

Couples and hiking partners: If you and your partner(s) were unable to reserve permits for the same date and you have different permit dates, we will take you out on the same date. Choose one of your two (or more) permit dates and sign up for that date. We know life (and the permit allocation system) isn’t perfect.

If your plans change, please email us at sandiegopct@gmail.com.

We will send you a confirmation email within three days, BUT ONLY IF YOU SEND US AN EMAIL!!!!!
