Crags Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The dramatic, well-named Castle Crags are seen by thousands of disinterested motorists streaming down Interstate 5 every day. Far, far fewer souls turn off the highway to take a closer look, and only a fraction of those spend the time and energy to hike the 3-mile, moderately steep trail for an even better view of this majestic formation of towering spires. Castle Crags is one of northern California’s more impressive natural features, and the Crags Trail to the base of Castle Dome is the preeminent trail within the namesake park and adjoining wilderness area."
