    Hi Rodolfo, did only part of this particular segment in California during two weeks. Be warned that it's rugged and usually remote and wild. The whole PCT is 2,650 miles and it generally takes the entire snow-free season or about 5 months. The elite ultra-runners-hikers might do it in 2 months. The few who achieve sub-100 day for the whole PCT count on be hiking well over 30 miles per day.

    I have downloaded the Washington & Oregon PCT trails from you. Sadly the northern and Southern California PCT trails will not transfer to Garmin:(

    Are you using Wikiloc for ConnectIQ app? https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/54505088-813d-4700-afea-a3105366ec6b That's what I'm using with my GPSMap66 and it works perfectly. You might want to contact Wikiloc support@wikiloc.com since this is beyond my reach

    Thank you for such quick response. Yes I a using the ConnectIQ and was able to easily load your Washington & Oregon PCT sections and thus lost why the CA ones won’t load. Will follow up with Wikiloc.
