Climb McMillan Peak 12804 ft.

Friday, July 8, 7:30 am Register by Email

This annual high-altitude hike follows a road for a short way, then occasional trails. It begins above Red Mtn. Pass, climbs thru US Basin to a ridge and makes a final ascent to the top of the mountain where there is room for all and we will have lunch. Views are spectacular and wildflowers are usually abundant. Descent is by a shorter, steeper route, mostly through meadows. Poles helpful. Limit 15. 4wd helpful. Carpool $13.
