Andy I enjoyed this as an acclimation hike the day before we climbed Kings Peak. What an enjoyable hike! We sat out a short thunderstorm just below treeline. Then nice views from the summit!
The only issue was that we shredded a rental car tire on the road out. The last several miles are pretty rough! Thanks Sarah for making the suggestion on this mountain!
East Fork Blacks Fork Trailhead Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2008
I enjoyed this gentle peak on a lunch break during our out-hike from Red Castle Lake. I had spent several nights in the lovely wilderness wonderland backpacking the East Fork Blacks Fork Loop. I literally dashed up this mountain while my companions finished lunch. I bragged breathlessly for 10 minutes non-stop about the views from the summit, which I enjoyed alone.
