Ascent Trip Report

From U. S. 50 9 miles east of Pollock Pines take Ice House Rd (FS 3) up the mountain past the Ice House Resort, Union Valley Reservoir, the Cheese Camp Rd turnoff to the Van Vliek TH for the Crystal Range, the major intersection with the Georgetown Rd to FSR 14N06, 3 miles after the Wentworth Springs Campground. Here a sign points to Bunker Hill--5 miles. Follow this reasonably good road several miles until, just beyond a 4-way intersection, park at a locked gate. It was a pleasant walk of about 1 mile up the road to the top of Bunker Hill and the L.O. The L.O., which appears to have lots of volunteer attention, is named for Joseph Baumann (1898-1965) The views on this particularly clear, breezy morning highlighted peaks in the heavily snow-covered Crystal Range. Other peaks in view included Basin Mountain, Castle Peak, Snow Mountain, and nearby McKinstry Peak (7,933').
