12 Best Day Hiking On The Pacific Crest Trail

Lower Castle Crags

The spectacular Castle Crags from the Northern California PCT

After the PCT drops out of the highlands of Central California, spectacular views and scenery can still be found every step of the way. Especially so, when hikers enter the vicinity of Castle Crags State Park and nearby Mount Shasta. The granite spires and impressive rock croppings that comprise Castle Crags can be seen in clear sight along the 6.7 miles the PCT meanders through the state park, as well as stunning views of Mount Shasta not far off in the distance. While the PCT portion of this celebrated Northern California landmark is filled with enough scenery to make an out-and-back adventure worthy, many visitors also opt for the Castle Crags Dome Trail, which takes recreationists up to the top to explore in and around these postcard-worthy pinnacles.
