It's a "West Coast Version"

The PCT is a version of the AT. We all knew that, and now it's in print in the Washington Post of 1 July 2007 in an article by Laura Randall headlined "Escape From L.A.; In Idyllwild, Calif., the Hiking Is Just the Beginning."

Randall's exact words are:
"Less than three miles later, I reached a wooded clearing that connects with the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail, the West Coast's version of the Appalachian Trail, and rested on a fallen log near a small patch of snow. It was a reminder that I had just climbed 1,700 feet to an elevation of more than 8,000 feet."
Only a version.
