Ascent Trip Report

Loop from Crystal Lake campground up Cienega Trail to Mt Islip, then down across Windy Gap and on PCT to turnoff on Hawkins Ridge Trail, which we took south over Middle, Sadie, and South Mount Hawkins. The lookout burned since I was there in 2000. Sad. Returned to Crystal Lake on South Mt Hawkins Road which has not been maintained. Multiple rock avalanches and washouts on the road. Not suitable for mountain biking, which is something we had considered.
