Got off on the wrong foot as we thought the choo choo station was the TH and started walking down the railroad tracks. We soon realized it couldn't be right and found the correct TH which is the 2nd of 2 quick lefts. Nice views but we weren't quite high enough to be completely out of the inversion.
I went up the northeast ridge. The north end of Deer Creek Reservoir was icy. The tubing hill at Soldier Hollow is popular judging by the number of people I saw down there.
While my wife had a dr's appointment nearby, I found time to pick this one up. A good workout considering the over 1000 feet of elevation gain and a terrific viewpoint. Will pick up some more in that area since my wife has more appointments coming up. Combine this with "Chair Peak" for a nice day when nothing else is
on the schedule.
Nice place to hike when everything is under snow.
