Benedict "Gentle Ben" Go thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 1996. To this day, memories of that life continue to make him smile. The sweet innocence of the unknown, the lessons still to be learned. He started on the PCT not fully knowing what to expect. It was the most challenging journey he had ever attempted. Since that time, Gentle Ben has been committed to updating the essential pocket guide to the trail. All of his book royalties are donated to the Pacific Crest Trail Association's Jane and Flicka Endowment Fund, which helps to fund trail maintenance and promote trail use.
