Yet another Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) documentary to add to your list: Only the Essential: Pacific Crest Trail Documentary
The film was created by Casey Gannon and Colin Arisman during their 2013 thru-hiked of the Pacific Crest Trail. The film is short (less than 40 minutes) and does a great job of capturing the spirit of the trail.
The narrator’s voice was a bit monotonic and some of the stop motion videos were nauseating, but overall I enjoy it. They captured some amazing footage of desert and the mountains and it was refreshing to see their enthusiasm throughout the journey. Even though hikers are documenting their trips in increasing numbers, I still enjoy watching most of them and see new facets of the trail in each one.
It’s embedded below, but you can also check it out on the Wild Confluence Films site.
