I hiked up trail 64 from Pine Lodge and had avoid a fair amount of deadfall on the trail. The recent fire has opened up the views and charred many of the area trees. Lots of undergrowth now, as the area begins to recover.
Route Climbed: Trail #64 Date Climbed: 6 March 2004
I started at the TH at 4:00 and reached the summit 2.5 hours later. The views on this mountain are spectacular, you could see forever from the top. The hike reminded me a lot of Pikes Peak. There were a lot of swich backs so I climbed a short pitch to avoid some. Overall it was a great hike, up and down in 4 hours.
