jdmorehouseRoads Are Open  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2014


People drive to the summit, which is a truly sucky thing to do. There is ample evidence that ATVs drive through and over closed roads or anywhere else they can, ruining the fragile soil/vegetation and leaving long lasting scars. This is an outstandingly beautiful place. What is wrong with these people?

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2013


Drove the Tundra up to Belfort via Sweetwater ranch (4x4 only). Parked at dried pond and dayhiked the peaks. Saw no other hikers, just atvs and dirtbikes. Meh. But the rocks and terrain is out of this world, almost alien. Feels like mars or the moon.

cdogspring hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 26, 2013


Had a nice hike with Amy and the dogs up the west side. We were able to drive partway up the ridge above and east of Lobdell Lake, which resulted in a round-trip hike of around 7 miles. Did see a few atvs & motorcycles on the summit, who had come up from the south via Wheeler Peak. Seems like spring conditions make for a quieter experience, since the snow keeps some of the vehicles away. Amazing views for sure.

Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2012


Really cool mountain and range. The summit area is very barren. Driving up this mountain I imagine is way more fun than hiking the road. Bluebird views, cold wind, and a little snow on the upper slopes.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2011


Went up with a group that also traversed to Wheeler as well. This could be a cool place to ski in the winter if approached from the east.

Hiked Wheeler Peak from Lobdell Lake and then backtracked to Patterson. Great day with very little wind and the only ATVs were down low by the lake.

Drove up the 4x4 road from Lobdell Lake, within a couple hundred feet of the summit. There was a dusting of snow most of the way up making it very scenic.

Duane, Grant, and I got this one on our way south for our North Palisade climb. Duane drove his Explorer to well above Lobdell Lake at about 9800 feet, then we hiked the rest of the way. This peak has over 4000 feet of prominence (P4K), which was the motivation. Great views on a very clear day.

SageHawkEasy hike via 4wd road  Sucess!


4wd road leads from Lobdell lake to the summit. Unfortunate in a way since I had to deal with lazy ATV riders passing me on the way to the summit. Great hike other than that.
