Will Ross has dreamed of completing a thru-hike since first hearing about the Appalachian Trail at the age of 10. Approaching 30 he realized it’s time to quit dreaming and start hiking! In the summer of 2017 Will tackled one of America’s most rugged National Scenic Trails, the Pacific Northwest Trail.

Go on a journey from the Continental Divide in Montana, to the Olympic Coast of Washington as Will shares his pictures and experiences from his 1200 mile backpacking odyssey on the PNT. Learn about our newest National Scenic Trail, hiker trash, trail magic, and what it feels like to eat a half gallon of ice cream in one sitting.

Will Ross was born in Germany, but lived all over the US growing up, thanks to his father’s career in the military. Will grew to love the outdoors from an early age, taking family hiking, camping, and fishing trips in Colorado, Arizona, and West Virginia. Will has spent the last 12 years in Hawaii and California, where his passion for the outdoors continues to grow.
