Ascent Trip Report

The final peak of the day was Garnet Mountain, just around the corner from Pioneer Mall. The PCT runs right past the peak, but the short trail to this summit is just to the west. Ducking under a metal gate, the rocky trail heads up, and the wind continued to blow. Once the trail ends, a hint of a use trail could be seen, up through the brush, I went. Atop the summit, I found the register and carefully signed in to prevent it from blowing away. Back down to the car, covering a mere 0.8 miles.
