The views from this portion of the Pacific Crest Trail are outrageous -- Lassen Peak and Mt. Shasta! Elevations along the trail range from 3,200 to 5,500 feet. Portions of the trail are under snow until late spring.

A reminder:
Drinking water is not available on the 26-mile section of the trail that traverses Hat Creek Rim, so be sure and pick up water at either Old Station or Cassel. It is a good idea, when planning a trip, to call a forest office and inquire about conditions.

Directions: From Highway 44, The Eagle Lake District Office is located in Susanville. Maps and information available.
