Trail up from Cloudburst was great. Views from the summit, though, were mostly obscured by trees.
Hike isn't too bad, coming down from Winston Peak to the ridge is steep and loose...better views from Winston Ridge.
Hiked to the top from the use trail at Cloudburst Summit. Descended down to the Pacific Crest Trail, and hiked that back to Cloudburst Summit. According to the unreliable GPS on my iPhone, total distance was about 3 miles with about 1,400 feet elevation gain.
Warm up hike before Twin Peaks and Waterman.
Heather and I parked below Windy Gap at 7am and then hiked up Baden-Powell, Burnham, Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, and Islip. We got back to the car at 2pm and then drove around hiking up Akawie, Winston, and Lewis. The next day we did both summits of Twin Peaks as well as Waterman.
My 100th HPS summit and 2nd of the day. Combined with Winston Ridge via north use trail which I left a little skin on.
First time ever walking on snow (I'm originally from the southern US.) First time solo hiking. First time going off-trail. It was short but exciting for me. Not too difficult to find a path up.
Took a trip up to the middle-high country the day after an early season storm to see if there was any snow. There wasn't. The cool air was very enjoyable though. With Winston Ridge and Mt. Waterman.
This was my first HPS peak! Quick and easy hike from cloudburst summit
HOT day of peakbagging including Twin Peaks, Akawie, Winston Peak, Winston Ridge, Mt. Mooney, & Mt. Sally. The Winstons are a nice loop hike.
The Crest Highway was closed about 3 miles west of Cloudburst Summit. So we took the PCT east to the point where it crosses the highway again and from there we climbed the west ridge directly among beautiful boulders and under gorgeous pine trees to the summit area. Descended directly south to Cloudburst Summit and hiked on the PCT and highway back to the car. Overall 8 miles roundtrip with 1500 feet of elevation gain. Great day in that area.
Hiked up during the summer but snowshoed yesterday. It was a gorgeous above the clouds day.
Hiked and bouldered on this peak numerous times, and snowshoed with Melba^^
I can now add skiing to the various activities I've done on this peak. Very nice spring conditions on 3/26/11.
Nice hike we had hitting both Winston Peak and Ridge! Wonderful views.
Hiked to Mt. Williamson, Mount Akawie, Winston Peak, Mount Mooney and Mount Sally. Nice view to the southeast from Winston Peak.
Tagged Mt. Williamson first, then Mt. Akawie, Winston Peak, Mt. Mooney, and finally Mt Sally.
With a host of other nearby HPS peaks, a fine day of hiking. Trip Report
Combined this one and Mt. Akawie for a fun day. Fresh powder and clear skies
Part of an HPS trip to Akawie, Winston Peak, and Winston Ridge.
