This segment of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail is 37.5 miles long and located within the Sky Lakes Wilderness.

From the south entry at the Summit Trailhead (5,000'), the Pacific Crest Trail reaches an elevation of 7,300' in the Devil's Peak area, where snow can persist until the end of July. The trail difficulty is easy to moderate for the most part, with more difficult higher grades near Lucifer and Devil's Peak area. There are several long dry stretches so bring plenty of water and stock up at the water sources along the way (purification is recommended).

Directions: From Klamath Falls, Travel west on Highway 140 approximately 41 miles to the Summit Trailhead/Sno-Park located on the north side of the highway. The Summit Trail begins at the northwest corner of the paved parking area and provides access to the Pacific Crest Trail in just 0.2 miles.
