since I was interested where the mountain was. With Weaverville, GoogleEarth and Topozone together with your Getting There section I finally managed to get it. BTW I think it must be more than 13miles from the road to the trailhead. I had to scroll forever in Topozone.

To clarity: From Junction City on Highway 299 it is 13 miles north on paved narrow twisting road to the Canyon Creek Trailhead. I've measured it many a time on foot, on bike, and in my car.

Needs a more detailed route added on difficulty and distance from trailhead to summit. Let me know when you make changes and I will upgrade my vote. I can tell you are a writer too, great description in the overview section.

I'm curious to know if anyone knows about the West (back) side of Hilton. It looks like, from topos and google Earth and from a brief view on the drive into Hobo Gulch, like there is a spectacular face on that side and a very steep bowl that is very cold and protected and could offer some great early season mountaineering. But how to even get there is the first problem that I don't quite know how to surmount. It'd be a huge schlep from Canyon Creek Lakes to make a summit push in a single day from there.

I do not know much about that peak when approached from the west side. However, this shot may be a little helpful:

The guy who took this had a small one man helicopter and flew around the Alps, taking some great aerial shots. He has other great shots but this one seems to depict the face you were describing.
