PCT Trail Angel activity curtailed


March 27, 2021

As excited as we usually are about the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) hikers who visit Tehachapi, the local PCT Angel Committee must once again curtail our hiker assistance activities.

Restrictions have been placed on all Californians, and those entering the State, as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic which are not consistent with a hike of the PCT. In addition, the Pacific Crest Trail Association (PCTA) has recommended that long distance hiking activities on the PCT should not take place until the situation with regards to the pandemic has ended State restrictions on such activities.

Following orders from the State of California and guidance from the PCTA will hopefully help ensure the health and safety of PCT hikers, PCT Angels and the Tehachapi Community at large. The Committee will re-evaluate this decision when the State of California has determined that the danger of community transmission of COVID-19 has been minimized. In line with this, the City of Tehachapi has informed the Committee that Aviator Park will again be closed to camping by PCT hikers for the season.
