Some of the best views around Tahoe peaks and also of other surrounding peaks. Relatively straight forward trail and easy to access with 2wd in Spring-Summer.

We hiked (with a some postholes) up the jeep trail from Cisco grove after minor problems finding the first turnoff. The descent in sun-soften snow was a blast!

Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2012

Parked near the campground at Cisco Grove. I followed the southwest ridge from near highway 80 over three minor highpoints and past the abandoned lookout before arriving at Signal Peak. I crossed several different bear tracks going over the ridgeline in this section. I tagged the slightly lower unnamed peak near Signal before continuing along the ridge to Fordyce Summit. From there I followed snowmobile tracks down Fordyce Road back to the campground. Except for a short section at the beginning, I was able to use snowshoes the entire way.

Ok the "Jeep Trail" isn't a jeep trail- its an ATV width track 1 mile from the bridge (or .4 miles from the 1mi marker on Fordyce Road)

Left Nevada City at 6:15 and back before noon. Skied off the summit at about 10:00 just as the sun was beginning to soften the upper centimeter, so made for a quick morning sneak-away-from-work-trip.

Like other people, I couldn't find the old Jeep trail, so I just slogged up the SE face on snowshoes. The snow was good, but it was really warm going up. The summit was really cool. I climbd the medium sized radio tower for an added rush. Checked out the old lookout hut as well. Coming down was very fun, I just glided down the snow on my shoes. Went snowboarding afterwards. 3 hours, roundtrip.

The last of three enjoyable days out around I-80 with Bob. We took the old jeep road/trail up, and followed the ridge almost all the way down. Nice views and spectacular weather--65° out when we got back to the car!

It was very hot for Feb but I still used snowshoes the entire way. Great views but wondered if I was getting nuked by RF and microwaves. Got in some nice glissading in corn snow on the way down.

I had a fun time on this peak. The gate was locked, so i walked up the road looking for the jeep trail that leads to the Hut and then the summit. i guess i went pass the trail, so desided to head straight up the east face. With careful route finding you could avoid most of the bushes. Soon you are on the road and the top. Lots to see in the Northern Sierra and just a nice place to be. Find the good trail down on the south from the Hut.

I did this climb with some friends after the freak snowstorm in October. It was my first ascent of a peak with snow and I did not have snow shoes so I was post holeing a lot. Still a lot of fun.

An awesome day on snowshoes! We went after a series of huge storms (15 feet of snow) and were concerned of Avy's. No problems though. The weather was fantastic as were the views.
