great views from the top!
With Pine Ridge.
Very enjoyable hike from the blue gate with my family. Pretty popular with the locals also. Found the mileage to be 3+ miles one-way not the 1.5 as advertised.
Fun evening hike from Southfork Highway to top.
Hiked up the road from the locked blue gate. Pretty uneventful hike. Socked in day so no views from the top. Did Heart Mountain earlier in the day.
I've been to the top 5 or 6 times (hiking from the bottom) and I do shorter training hikes on the dirt road as often as once a week. The trails make for a much nicer hike, though the road is convenient.
Quite cold , windy and snowing. Passed by the intimidating radio tower signs and made it to the top. Nice view of Resevoir and North Fork
Hiked this peak from the property gate on Feb. 1, 2009, Feb. 21, 2009, Mar. 20, 2009, and Oct. 3, 2009.
My first time completing this mountain from its base was Oct. 11, 2009 in a snowstorm and 20-degree weather.
This was my first time reaching the top - I hiked the road to the top on a day when there were high wind warnings in the area. Gusts were about 60 mph on top at times, but the views were amazing!
