Fall colors  Sucess!

A worthwhile way to spend a fall colored day. Great ridgelines, vistas to gaze at, and cardio pushes topped off the fun.

Nice views  Sucess!

We managed to get this in the week before the smoke moved in. I can see why they chose this for a lookout. Nice line of sight past the Devils, into the Wallowas and the entirety of the Lick Creek Range. Very nice, easy walk.

Great views  Sucess!

Good family hike. The fire lookout was being put to good use. The trailhead area has been reworked and there is good signage.

Great Fall Hike  Sucess!

Was a very nice hike on a fantastic fall morning. Lot's of autumn colors along the way. Here’s a write up and some photos.

Route Climbed: Main Trail Date Climbed: October 11, 2004  Sucess!

Trail was somewhat hard to follow. Overall an easy climb. Total ascent time was about 90 minutes, and overall was about 2 1/2 hours. Beautiful view from the top.

Route Climbed: East Ridge trail 165 Date Climbed: July 31, 2004  Sucess!

From New Meadows this mountain looks umimpressive and no where near its 8,479 ft. elevation. But when climbing Pollock Mt. earlier in the month I could see the top with its multiple ridges and rocky bowls and knew it was one to climb. Saw one other hiker with a friendly dog on top. Found some interesting plants, one which is disjunct from the Sierras of California. The trail is easy to moderate and the only problem was cow crap and smell on the lower trail. Oh and I returned to a flat tire at the trailhead, but it still was a great day.
