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).
