The Pacific Northwest Trail (PNT) goes through Idaho, Montana, Washington. From the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Northwest Trail is a unique hiking experience, offering a variety of back-country scenery and outdoor adventure.  The 1200-mile Pacific Northwest Trail, running from the Continental Divide to the Pacific Ocean, ranks among the most scenic trails in the world.  The PNT crosses 3 National Parks and 7 National Forests, and ends at the Pacific Ocean, on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. On Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands, this trail meanders through areas rich in Native American and Pioneer history, along a historic railroad grade deep in the canyon of the Similkameen River, and high above the shores of Lake Chopaka, in the heart of the Okanogan highlands of northern Washington.
