Ascent Trip Report

I hiked this one from the same starting point as nearby Peak 3700. This is on the left fork of Birdseye Creek Road. I hiked the road past the gate, around the east side (which has been recently clear cut) of Peak 3700, and down to a saddle. I continued south on the road across the ridge towards point 3336T. When the road turned east at the base of point 3336T, I left the road and climbed up over the high point of point 3336T. The hike up to the high point is through a forest canopy that has been thinned. I continued directly across the top of 3336T and kept going south. I found a dirt bike trail that I followed down to a saddle where it dumped me onto an old logging road. I followed this old logging road across the wide ridge and then on the west side of the hill between 3336T and Peak 3300. The west side of this hill has also been clear cut. The road ended at the base of Peak 3300 on the east side. I followed a "use" trail up the the east ridge of Peak 3300 right up to the high point. I don't know who uses this trail, but there was fresh bear scat on the trail. The high point is forested and there are no views. There are views in different places on the road hiking to the Peak 3300 that are nice.
