Ascent Trip Report

Followed Bob Sumner's directions in his book "Hiking Nevada County High Points". Pretty good directions but not a very interesting hike because you're on a well maintained dirt road almost the entire way. So on the way back we went around the South side of East peak Lake, then due East on a lesser dirt road until we intersected the TRT and then followed that back to the TH at the parking lot of the Stagecoach Express Ski Lift. That made it a 11.25 mile trip.
