#1: The confluence point lies at the base of a pine tree, on a steep, rocky slope.

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

03-Sep-2012 -- The trick for visiting this confluence point is to take the narrow 4-wheel-drive road at [42.00747,-120.01548]. This road will get you about 1/4 mile from the confluence point.

The hike to the confluence point took me alongside a creek, then up a slope to the north. The confluence point lies beneath a small pine tree, just beside a scree slope (to the east). Looking south, I saw a rustic creek, and beyond, a rocky ridge, forming Oregon's border with Nevada (on the left) and California (on the right). This is a beautiful spot.

Having visited the confluence point, I couldn't stop there, because there was another noteworthy point just 0.3 miles away: The Oregon-California-Nevada tripoint, at [41.99491,-119.99950]. Reaching this point required a difficult scramble up a steep, rocky slope.
