Cisco1974Hough   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2014

I decided to hike the four smaller peaks due to the distance of the trailhead from my home. I took the Lillian Brook trail to the summit. I loved the trail! There were so few rocks and the brook was pleasant. The views from this peak of the Beck-horn were amazing! I descended to the col and off to South Dix.
I went into this hike with my map but no descriptions. I was certainly hampered by the non-existent trail markers throughout what became a trying day. I would love to go back and put up durable trail signs and directions. Heck I wouldn't mind bringing a chainsaw and fixing some trail issues.

Summited Hough Peak 4400' during a 2 night backpacking trip in the Dix Range. After summiting Macomb and East & South Dix, we followed the trail from South Dix over a false peak before the final push to the summit of Hough, Dix Mountains neighbor. The herd path beat us up pretty bad, with trees and pine needles wacking us in the face constantly. We also postholed constantly in the 2 feet of snow. The summit was mostly covered in foliage. Hough was merely an obstacle on our way to Dix Mountain.

In June '78 I knocked-off 5 peaks with my Scout Troop and a great leader that hooked me on wilderness adventures (Dix, East Dix, South Dix, Hough and McComb)

Nicely broken trail, used snow shoes the whole way. We saw a guy who slipped off Dix summit, 10 feet, caught by a little spruce tree. :-/ Lucky! Came down the Lillian Brook trail. Sore knees afterwards!!! The herd path was easy to find, slightly packed down. No problems. Beautiful winter day for hiking!!!

At this point RD Jim and I had yet to see another hiker the entire day. Had the whole range to ourselves until we got up to the Beckhorn. Herd paths in great shape for unofficial trails. 32/46. Fine day!

Did this as part of a one-day Dix Range Traverse. Came up the Macomb Slide and then through the herd paths to South Dix, East Dix, then back to Hough. Beautiful sunny day with a few clouds here and there. The views are great from Hough, but somewhat overshadowed by its neighbor Dix.

Warm, snowy day. Did Hough along with East and South Dix. Lots of snow on the approach. Had the best views of the day on Hough, which basically included one of the Dix slides breaking out from the clouds and the East/South Dix Ridgeline briefly coming into view. Needless to say, we were in the clouds all day.

Climbed with Macomb, South Dix and East Dix via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. Traversed over from South Dix across the Hogback to Hough's windy summit. Instead of backtracking, we descended via the herd path along through Lillian Brook.

Had a hard time finding the herd path from Dix, but we used the GPS and eventually bushwhacked our way to the summit. Snowy and steep up top with loose snow that we used crampons for. #33/46. : )

Descended the Beckhorn ridge to Hough. Descent trail, would rather go down it than up. The Lillian Brook escape route has been cleared of blowdown, it's open and recognizable behind the Hough col. You can also go up this as an alternate access to the Dix Range. Perfect weather, perfect day. Contrary to the description, there are good views from the summit.
