I have a month off and want to do a 500ish mile hike Aug 15-Sep 15. The PCT across Washington state sounds amazing, but I've done the JMT and I'd like to try the Rockies. That being said the Colorado Trail is more crowded (maybe?) and I do like seclusion.
Most important I want to be awed by scenery and challenged by high altitude and difficult hikes. Anyone here ever done both hikes got any advice? Maybe a different section of the PCT? I've only done the JMT to date, so I'm really open to suggestions.
