This original GearJunkie video, shot and produced by Wild Confluence Media, follows the crew along the driest section of the PCT, offering a slice-of-life of the trash-gathering hikers on their journey north. (GearJunkie.com)

This summer, two young Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikers are picking up trash as they go, up to 1,000 pounds of cleared litter a goal during the multi-month trip.

Called the ‘Packing It Out’ project, two men in their early 20s are two months into the PCT hike, a 2,560-mile journey from Mexico to Canada, through deserts, mountains, and forests. This video gives a glimpse at what it’s like to hike day in and day out, picking up the trash they see along the way.

The initiative’s mission statement, to inspire a greater sense of environmental stewardship within our communities by raising awareness for litter conditions along America’s trails, is a testimony to how the two friends hope to encourage and inspire others to do their part in cleaning local and national hiking trails.
