Hat Creek Rim Overlook


The Hat Creek Rim is a fault where the earth’s crust has been shifted vertically along fissures, crevices, and fractures caused by powerful subterranean forces. Still “alive and cracking” today, the rim is over 900 feet above the Hat Creek Valley floor. However, one million years ago the rim and the valley were at the same elevation. Outfitted with viewing scopes, this overlook affords views of geologic pillars such as West Prospect Peak, Lassen Peak, Crater Peak, Magee Peak, Burney Mountain, and Mt. Shasta as well as offers an access point to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail.
