PCT Hikers visit Tehachapi on their way North
The Loop's Local Scene
Five Duke University students arrived in town on June 1, after hiking from the Mexican border. They intend to continue north to the Canadian border.
They are showering and sleeping at Aviator Park at Tehachapi Airport. Hikers will continue coming through Tehachapi until late June, and then the numbers slow to a crawl. There will be a fall group coming through also, but in much smaller numbers.
Over forty Tehachapi Pacific Crest Trail Angels have volunteered their time to take hikers like this all over town and to and from the two trailheads that are nine miles from downtown Tehachapi. Hikers still need to trek to the Post Office, the markets, and many other downtown locations. These interesting individuals really appreciate rides from our Tehachapi Angels!
