Did lots of short little hikes. In addition to Monte Cristo, did Elk Ridge, Middle Ridge, Mount McKinnon, Dairy Ridge, Swan Ridge, and Little Monte. Wished for long pants and gaiters as lots of stuff got in boots. Lots of mosquitoes.
Easy peak right off of the highway. Also did Mount McKinnon, Rex Peak and Franklin CoHP this day.
I've been to Monte Cristo a few times during autumn. A lot of hunters in the area during that time.
My wife and I drove highway 39 to see an area we hadn't been to and also to bag this peak and Rex peak north of Woodruff. Easy hike from where we parked north of the peak.
Took the long scenic drive and the short scenic hike to the summit. Good way to kill an afternoon.
