Somehow, it's nearly late August - and that means the 14th Annual PCT Days is just around the corner!
CNOC Outdoors is a proud Summit Sponsor of this year's summer festival, happening August 20-22, 2021 in beautiful (windy) Cascade Locks, Oregon.

Pacific Crest Trail Days is a weekend-long outdoor expo and gear festival held (almost) annually by the PCTA and benefitting the American Long Distance Hiking Association (ALDHA) West, welcoming all backpackers, hiker trash, weekend warriors, day hikers, newbies and old hats alike.
"Pacific Crest Trail Days is an annual summer festival that celebrates and promotes hiking, camping, backpacking & outdoor stewardship. Attendees can participate in activities, games, & presentations, win awesome gear at the raffle, and get great deals on the latest outdoor products from sponsors at the Gear Expo...a wide-range of gear and info will be here!"
The coolest part about this festival is the people and camaraderie - networking, meeting new friends, overnight camping, getting to know the hikers around you (and some from far away).
With Covid challenges this year, PCT Days organizers have taken extra steps to make sure everyone feels safe at the festival:
- Masks required at booths and 6' social distancing encouraged
- *FREE* Vaccine Clinic offered by the Hood River Health Department, Saturday between 10AM-4PM (look for the HRC mobile vax unit). Rad!
Very nice people amazed at the lightness and comfort of our (then) brand new CNOC Telescopic Trekking Poles at PCT Days in 2019
We can't wait to nerd out about outdoor gear with you 😎🌲⛰
