on Malan's Peak Trail

hiking
21 days ago

This hike is fairly short, but can be quite tough with the steep continual climb to the top, so be prepared. I've seen many people struggling on this hike to reach the top. The view at the top is a good payoff and if you have a little more time, you can take a short 10 - 15 minute hike from the summit down to Malan's Basin. There are a couple campgrounds off the side of the trail doing down to Malan's Basin and another couple at the bottom. If you explore the campgrounds off the side of the trail on your way down, they have a pretty good view of the valley below.
