Another nice hike on a section of the Pacific Crest Trail, south from the Henness Pass Road at Jackson Meadows Reservoir to where we ended heading the other way previously. The very first section of the trail was a bit confusing because it intersected with campground roads and a recently logged area, but otherwise it was easy to follow. Great views of Sierra Buttes from various points along the trail. We returned via the Pass Creek Valley on forest roads.
