“Only The Essential”: A 5-month, 2,668-mile journey on the Pacific Crest Trail

In the summer of 2013 Casey Gannon and Colin Arisman thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail with cameras in hand. “Only The Essential” is the story of their 5-month, 2668-mile journey on foot from Mexico to Canada across the wilderness of California, Oregon and Washington.

The full length film will be available to stream for free online, as well as premiering around the country and being submitted to film festivals. Prior to the hike we successfully ran a Kickstarter fundraiser, and we are deeply grateful for the independent financial support of those who backed our project.

The film is a non-commercial project and has been a labor of love for us. We are honored that Only The Essential has received the support of the Pacific Crest Trail Association. Only the Essential will premier at Pacific Crest Trail Days, fall 2014.
