Leaving an exciting early morning aid station, runners head up the PCT out of the aid station. 1 mile later, the trail passes Grassy Hollow Visitor Center. Pit toilets are available off the trail to the left. 3.5 miles past the Inspiration Point aid station (PAS)*, a picturesque view of the next challenge comes into view at 9,406’ Mt. Baden-Powell. Runners then dive downhill another mile to 6,600’ Vincent Gap, where they cross Hwy 2 and prepare for the longest climb of the race.
