Pacific Crest Trail

A brusing couple of miles south of Olallie Lake on the Skyline Road brings you to the Brieitenbush trailhead, and a large parking area complete with outhouse. From here, you can leave your jarring memories of the bumpy drive behind, and begin the spectacular climb up Park Ridge on the famed Pacific Crest Trail. In virtually any guidebook you will find that hikers of the entire 2,000 mile trail rank Jefferson Park, and the view from Park Ridge, as one of the top highlights - which explains the popularity of this trail, and the willingness of hikers to endure the access road!
