The approach road is not too bad. Saw some ticks on route so they are out and about.
Enjoyable spring hike. Did Pinyon earlier in the day and Sabie Mountian afterwords.
Did 5 separate little hikes including Maple Peak. First did 6965. Then 7474, Maple, and 7270 together, starting from the Cherry Creek Rd. Then drove a short distance north on #005 and made a side trip west to 7655. Continued north on #005 and made a side trip to J Hill. Finally, made it up Sabie Mt starting from #005.
Picked the wrong day to climb this one, really hot. Luckily it was a short climb. I replaced the summit register at the BM. Great views and saw a few gopher snakes on the way down. Also climbed J. Hill on the drive out
Kept driving higher and higher but didn't go up the final steep hill, parked at base. Parked at 7,525 feet. Pictures and maps at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah/maple_peak/eureka_area_056.htm
A nice hike up the north side to the summit. Found a register and a benchmark and great views.
