Cross country from Carr Lake TH. Dropped down to Feeley Lake on the way back...big mistake: major bushwhack!
Drove as far as I could on FR 17, which was about a mile before Carr Lake until the road was completley blocked by lingering snow. It was still a very easy hike, the snow was firm, so I was not post holing at all and even found a small use trail making its way up to the summit on the upper slopes. Great view and isolation. I was the only person around, which I'm sure is very different once summer gets underway.
I went to go hiking around the lakes but was stymied by snow so I chose to climb this nearby peak instead. I found out later that is is named. It has an excellent view of the many lakes in the area and of Sierra Buttes to the north.
Really nice hike in a great area. The peak was very easy but fun. The views were great. There was still a surprising amount of snow even at this low elevation. I also tagged Grouse Ridge.
