After the PCT drops out of the highlands of Central California, breathtaking views and scenery can still be found at every turn. Even more so when tourists are in the vicinity of Crags Castle State Park and nearby Mount Shasta, Granite spiers and impressive cliffs that include the castle cliffs can be seen clearly along the PCT’s 6.7 mile meanders through the state park, as well as stunning views of the Mount Shasta not far from the distance. While the PCT portion of this famous landmark in Northern California is filled with enough scenery to take to the streets with dignity, many visitors also opt for the Crags Castle Dome, which takes recreationalists to the top to explore around these postcard-worthy icons.
