    Check the regulations under the Part 61 Subpart E for Private Pilot.  The answer will be in there.

    If you missed it in there the answer is:
     
    (ii) One solo cross country flight of 150 nautical miles total distance, with full-stop landings at three points, and one segment of the flight consisting of a straight-line distance of more than 50 nautical miles between the takeoff and landing locations; and
    (iii) Three takeoffs and three landings to a full stop (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) at an airport with an operating control tower.
     
    But Wes is correct in giving you the full exctract from the FARs, as you should be familiar with all that pertain to the license you are seeking.
