The Coast Range Trail 

This is, quite the long range project, but, why not?

A trail from the Pacific Crest Trail in the south to the Pacific Crest Trail in the north, following the ridges and valleys of California's Coast Ranges.

Take a few minutes and look at the maps.

Pretty cool, eh?

This could be done as an alternative to the Pacific Crest Trail

And, think of this, combining the trails makes for the

California Rim Trail

A circumnavigation of the Great Central Valley of California
