Ep. 2 - PCT Hall-of-Fame Hiker, Bernadette Murray
Updated: May 25, 2019
Bernadette Murray first through-rode the PCT in 1969 with her family as a 10-year old. Bernadette joins the podcast to talk about how their family tackled and prepared for the trail, the numerous adventures one encounters when the trail is very undeveloped, and some funny and painful moments on trail.
Having finished after two seasons of hiking on October 7, 1970, Bernadette is gearing up one more time to through-ride the PCT in the summer of 2020, 50 years after she first did it. You can find out more about her upcoming journey at her facebook page or website, BordertoBorderPCT.
