Curley Peak Variation

A nice variation on the route described is to continue left on the Tanner Trail where it joins the Stolz trail, a couple hundred yards to a junction with spur trail 1333-1. Follow this trail left (west) to a nice broad overlook, then cross the meadow and follow the ridge towards the Curley Peak(s) just keep following the ridge to hit all the high points, then drop back a bit to rejoin the trail near the Stoltz-Tanner junction. This adds a half mile or so to the hike but it's worth it and shortens the bushwack a bit.
Minor correction: to the saddle described in the route it is approximately 2.2 miles from the trailhead (not 1.5) It is an additional 1.5 miles to the trail junction (the sign says 3 but it's wrong!)

Re: Curley Peak Variation


Thanks for the additions / corrections, particularly the variation information.

I'll take a look at the mileages I stated and see if we can make some adjustments.
