Ascent Trip Report

From Haynes MT.
Followed the BLUE trail, south. There are a few steep sections of less than 15-20' that, depending upon the weather, could be slippery and require both hands and feet. After about 1.3 miles there is a side trail heading west, to the summit of Eagle Mt. Since this trail is not marked, there is a large orange canister and a Carin at the summit of Eagle Mt. There were plenty of fallen trees and rocks to sit upon while eating your lunch.

Heading back to Haynes, then on to Balsam Mt
