Service road trail. It’s all downhill to the campsite. Nice uphill hike on the way back.

This is by far my favorite hike I’ve done since moving to California. By now, the snows mostly melted up until about 1.5 miles from the peak. Nothing crazy, but it helped having hiking poles. The view from the top today was absolutely stunning and the Baden Powell marker at the summit is finally all visible.

The most trashed waterway I've seen in the U.S., in years. Not sure how anyone still thinks it's OK to trash any area, let alone a pristine waterway. We're talking diapers, food wrappers, glass and plastic bottles, bottle caps and food (biodegradable is still trash!). No trash cans in the area but how hard is it to pack your trash out??

Nice. I'm no pro, but this trail is a good start for the newbies. Once you get to the Mine be careful exploring it. It's a lot of old stuff that looks like it's about to collapse. Enjoy the views on the way up. Graffiti was upsetting. Not sure about the water that's there. My dog drank from it & she seems OK.
