U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, 1971.
Softcover. Very good. 8.5 x 11 inches, 48 pages, with illustrations and maps. Stapled binding. Some light staining to back cover, all else very good. Scarce early Forest Service management guide for the PCT, which was established as part of the national system of recreational and scenic trails in 1968. Includes details on the history and development of the trail to date, followed by criteria and priorities for further extension of the trail, including topographical considerations, signage, trailheads, river and road crossings, and more. Also addresses specific requirements for segments falling within National Parks, National Forest WIlderness Areas, BLM land, and the California State Park system.
