Ascent Trip Report

I approached Mine Camp Peak via the Paiute Trail out of Richfield. The dirt road (FS-103) was in decent condition and there was only a little snow on its surface the last 0.5 or so before reaching the parking right next to the cattle guard E-SE of the peak.

A use trail has developed on the cross country route down to the saddle and then up again to the summit of Mine Camp Peak. A few cairns helped guide, but it was easy to follow (even with a little snow on the ground).
