| Elevation:||3226 ft / 983 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDrove to the trail head of Three Sisters Waterfall off Boulder Creek Road from CA-78. The road turned to gravel at the Pine Hills Fire Station, but was in good shape for a 2WD sedan to pass. The trailhead parking lot was rutted, requiring a high clearance vehicle to park.
Followed the well maintained trail past the turnoff for Three Sisters and at around 2800' as the trail started to climb to the summit (.5 miles from summit), the trail became faint, with numerous intersecting use trails. Eventually reached the summit (after a few false ones) and signed the register. On the way down followed a trail marked by white ribbons, until I lost the track. Then followed a use trail back to the well maintained trail and back to the car.
