Ascent Trip Report

This peak offers the bang for your buck! With a minimal effort 15-20 minute hike from the highway, you can be on the summit and enjoying amazing views! This can be shorter if you drive the .20 miles up the easy dirt road.

There is a well defined trail that leads you up to the rocky area and then you can spot faint use trails to the top where a beautiful American Flag is flying. The views here are phenomenal. It’s almost like cheating to get these views without breaking a sweat. Raymond and Reynolds are so close and dominate the views. Mokelumne Peak, Round Top, 4th Of July, Jobs, and Jobs Sister can all be seen clearly. In the other direction, Highland and Silver are ever present and the Ebbett’s area peaks, Tryon, Hiram, Folger, Lookout, And Bull Run make a nice appearance. Leavitt Peak sticks out far in the distance.

Loved this stroll to the top. Despite the loose rocks on the summit, still would be an easy hike for the kids. My 8-year old did it round trip in 36 minutes.
