Jefferson.Wildflowers in summerFollowed by Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikersA quick walk through a forest leading to open views makes this a great place to watch the sunset~4.5 miles roundtrip

Begin the short hike to Three Corner Rock by heading south on the Pacific Crest Trail from its crossing of Road CG 2090. After a steady 1.5 mile climb of roughly 600 feet, look for a large fallen sign marking the junction to Three Corner Rock. Shortly after, another older sign invites Pacific Crest Trail hikers to a reliable spring and the trail ends at a jeep road. Take a right and climb the remainder of the road to Three Corner Rock. Return the way you came.

Very Pretty

Very scenic, offers good views. However, it was pretty steep and mostly uphill. I went on a super foggy day and I still thought it looked beautiful!!
