T. WhiteFun in the snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2017

T. White

Even though the trail was covered with snow in the upper reaches, there were still a few who made it up that Saturday. Clear skies in the morning gave way to rolling clouds and a white-out on the upper slopes. Great conditioning hike.

trexkerryGreat fun  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 29, 2016
I started from Upper Deer Creek Lane, taking the Kaiser Peak trail. Stopped off at College Rock on the way up, a quick little scramble with nice views. Views were superb from the summit, looking out to the peaks of the high sierra to the north and east. On descent I came across a mama bear and her little cinnamon cub, probably out foraging for the upcoming winter. The encounter was fantastic, the 2 bears ran off about 100 yards and I got some great pictures. But the encounter sufficiently spooked me enough to make me abandon my plans of of doing a night hike later on that evening.

Acclimatization hike and a lay-of-the-land reconnaissance for the CTK bike ride. Good times.

Date Climbed: Nov 26, 2013


2-16 inches of fresh snow made for a scenic hike and outstanding views. Some minor post-holing atop the Kaiser ridge was not enough to make me wish for my snowshoes. I added about a mile to the round trip by missing the Potter Cut-Off junction on the return and hiking back to my starting point from the pack station. It was still an easy day, yet a great way to build up an appetite for Thanksgiving.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2010


I easily made it to the peak hiking cross country much of the way from Sample Meadows (after turning back early on a couple of previous attempts). On the way back after dark with a broken headlamp, I stumbled across a trail and sign about a mile from camp, chose the wrong way to go and wandered around all night covering much of the trail system. I guess I'd have been better off staying off trail, but it was not cold and there could be many worse ways to spend a night.

Date Climbed: Mar 29, 1987


Overnite snowshoe trip. I was a little disoriented I guess... I reached the summit sooner than expected, picked up my pack intending to continue on toward the west, when I realized that I was already on the highest point. Outstanding view- especially in the winter months when the air is clean and windswept.

Day hike from D&F Pack station. Encountered some snow and the trail was covered in sections. It's very cool to see the Sierra from the west side. On the way down, we checked out College Rock - quite neat rock formation and spot to view Huntington Lake.

Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2010


Deer Creek Lane was just melting out and managed to drive to within a couple 100 yards of the trailhead (4x4 could make the end). Went directly upslope to College Rock and wore snowshoes from beginning to end, had perfect weather and views. Camped overnight in the meadow above College Rock.

Hiked in from D&F Pack station; great views the whole way up. No people. One of my favorite ridges, especially considering the ease of access and great weather.

Very nice hike. Beautiful views from the top. Did it 2 years ago over 4th of July weekend. There was nobody else on the mountain and still quite a bit of snow on the top. We lost the trail on the bit up, but if you stay to the right of the gully you are okay.
