Ran into hunter couple on the trail, they left empty handed.
From Throop and Hawkins (obviously). Highly enjoyable ridge hike, but kind of disappointing as the summit register was missing.
With meetup.com group. Also included South Mt. Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, Mt. Hawkins, & Mt. Islip.
With Throop Peak and Mount Hawkins. Great ridge hike from Hawkins. Steep ascent back up to Hawkins but well worth the effort.
An eight peak day around Islip Saddle, cold in the morning but quite fine during the day. Trip Report
Hiked with TacoDelRio from Islip Saddle, to Mount Hawkins, to Copter Ridge, back to Mount Hawkins, to Windy Gap, up Mount Islip and down the east ridge. Nice hike, great weather. Here are my GPS tracks, elevation profile nad Google Map.
This was the second time I did it. Biked from Islip Saddle to right below Windy Gap. Hiked up from there to Hawkins and down to Copter, total time 5 hours. With the 2 still closed, gets few visitors.
Did Copter Ridge as part of a 6-peak loop including Mt. Lewis, Mt. Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, Throop Peak and Mt. Islip. We hiked from Islip Saddle to Dawson Saddle to begin the loop and returned to Islip Saddle.
