Hiked the PCT from Hwy 89 to the Dam at Britton Lake and back. Relatively easy ~ 6 mile r/t hike with elevation drop near the dam. At the dam, you can climb down the stairs to get to the water level if you like. You can also detour to Burney falls after the first mile or on the way back, which is definitely worth it if you haven’t seen it before. It’s something else. Falls loop adds about 1 mile to the trip
