I did this hike as part of the 100 peak challenge- but I really didn’t enjoy climbing up the bump to east mesa peak.. the trail along the peak it’s nice though- but the peak it’s off trail and once on the top the high bushes won’t let enjoy the view. Sometimes I wonder why they chose peaks like this one... well.. have fun!

Very nice trail with good diversity. Granite Spring camp looked interesting.
