Q&A: Pacific Crest Trail, A Ride To Remember

If you plan to spend any of your Thanksgiving week outdoors, you might want to do it in the spirit of Don and June Mulford. 

In 1959, the Mulfords and their five horses traversed the entire Pacific Crest Trail.  They started near Tijuana, Mexico, in April, and arrived at the Canadian border in September. 

It’s recognized as the first equestrian through-ride of the PCT. 

Don Mulford died 19 years ago, but June Mulford is still very much alive, living in Vancouver, WA.  June Mulford is with me now.

Oregon Experience will tell the story of the Mulfords’ 1959 ride up the Pacific Crest Trail Wednesday on OPB TV.
