The title compound, C6H10O3, crystallizes with three independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. In all three molecules, which have similar envelope conformations, the cyclopentane ring is arranged skew to the carboxyl group. Intermolecular O—H...O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into two-dimensional layers parallel to the ab plane.
