From the North Loop trailhead Date Climbed: Jan 6, 2007
Easy snowshoe in winter among many pretty bristlecone pines. A nice hike to take your dog along. Here are some photos from 2006: Fletcher Peak hike
I've done this peak also via Hummingbird Hollow, which is a nice summer route, but I haven't seen any hummingbirds there ;)
Via the North Loop Trail Date Climbed: May 24, 2006
I did this one along with a couple of friends and my dog. It was a little warm today especially at the section that cuts off cross country from the North Loop Trail. Fortunatly there were still patches of snow here and there...so a little snow under my ball cap melting on top of my head was really refreshing.
I hiked up the North Loop Trail. Right before the Bristlecomb Pine by the turn off to Mummy Springs I turned South to the Saddle of Fletcher (dips down about 150-200 feet), then hiked up to the top of Fletcher Peak. It took me just over 5 hours round trip. I stopped and ate a few times, visited with hikers, and enjoyed the views. GREAT VIEWS from Fletcher. I was the only one up there.
