Hey All, when's the latest it's safe to be hiking the PCT in Oregon? I'm thinking of section-hiking it later on in the fall as I don't want to miss any of Alaska's glorious summer, so I'm loosely looking at starting in late September. I've read that PCTers want to hit Canada no later than October, but since the Oregon trail is both more southerly and generally less mountainous, I'm wondering if I could safely (and comfortably, weather wise) hike it as late as October.
Is my reasoning here sound? could I push it even later if need be?
