About this spot
Cutthroat Pass is reached by a 5-mile walk on the famous Pacific Crest Trail. The first portion of the hike is in forest. Then, at the 4 mile point, the trail enters a subalpine basin where meadows are interspersed around groves of young firs and larches. The trail then switchbacks to an upper basin, with more larches and meadows, to reach Cutthroat Pass. Two creeks along the trail lack bridges, offering some challenge in early season.
