    Suz Rice reviewed Gothics via Pyramid Peak

    2 months ago

    Great hike with impressive views of the high peaks.
    We started around 6:45 AM (early start to allow for a leisurely break at the summit). Walked about a million (5) miles on the road to reach the trailhead. Before beginning our ascent, we stopped at Rainbow Falls. Highly recommended, only a few minutes off the main trail.

    The next couple miles up to the junction between Pyramid and Sawteeth was a steady incline, but not too difficult. The final 0.6 push to Pyramid was challenging but the views are worth the effort. At 4500 feet, I’m counting it as the 47th high peak, even though it is considered too close to Gothics to qualify.

    The trail from Pyramid to Gothics looks intimidating but goes quickly. Views on Gothics are also very impressive offering 360 views and a large, mostly bald summit. Ideal spot for a lunch break if I do say so myself.

    Descended down the beaver meadow trail, with a quick stop to cool down at Beaver Meadow Falls before our 5k stroll on the road to the car. Finished around 4:30 PM. All in all a fantastic hike with rewarding views. Highly recommended. 10/10 would hike again.

    Suz Rice reviewed Big Slide Yard Mountain Loop Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Big Slide via The Brothers was a great hike with panoramic views from Brothers 1&2, and the summit of Big Slide. Moderate hike with some tough spots. Hiked The Brothers/Big Slide loop in 9 hours (with multiple breaks at the summits). Hit the trail head at 6AM and caught the sunrise at the summit of the first Brother. Definitely recommended.
