Hiked in and camped at the upper lake. Had a pretty good snow flurry on the first day of summer. Climbed the peak the next day. First big peak for my GF and our dog. Great views, no goats. It felt closer to 8 miles round trip, as opposed to the 6.5 stated.

had to sign it, even though I climbed it when I was a little kid.
Don't remember seeing any goats, though. ;)

Took my scout troop to Norton Lakes for an outing and we climbed the peak. Everyone had lots of fun and the view from the top was amazing! We also saw 2 or three goats. (One might have been a repeat sighting.)

Hike-a-biked to Norton Lakes. After scrambling up the SE Ridge of the peak just west of Lower Norton Lake (can't find if it is named, it is just over 9700 feet high), came back down and found the trail to Norton. Didn't see any goats all day. A fun hike/scramble. Total time C 2 C was just under 5 hours. Ride down from the lake was 15 minutes. Fun day.

Camped at Upper Norton Lake, got up the next morning and climbed up the switchbacks to the South Ridge. We had a marvelous day; the wind was blowing hard on the summit. Matt scratched the USGS Marker with a pencil so we he had a nice imprint of it... NO Goats (are only disappointment).

Took the trail up from Norton Lakes to the saddle. Hiked up the ridge to the peak from there. Beautiful day. 6 of us made it to the summit, including a 9-month-old and a 18-month-old, who both rode in kid carrier backpacks. Hopefully someday they will come back to these peaks under their own power. Great summit views.

Hiked in from Prarie Creeks' TH to Miner Lake. Took the trail to the saddle and then climbed the ridge to the top. My camera broke on the summit. Great views of Boulders, Pioneers, White Clouds (mainly Castle Peak).

The lower trail to the Norton lakes is a popular destination for Sun Valley-ites. But the view from the top is worth the crowds. You can see the White Clouds, Sawtooths, Boulders and Pioneers. Also, I've never been to this area without spotting at least one mountain goat.

Climbed through a small snowstorm to break through clouds near the summit and view the freshly fallen snow. I could hear helicopters buzzing in the nearby Sawtooth in the rescue attempt on Thompson Peak.



Then did a long and time consuming traverse to Prarie Creek Peak and returned via Big Lost Lake, great day!
