Ascent Trip Report

Parked car along paved road just outside Snowshoe Springs Campground (elevation 6619'), 2 miles E of where Hwy 89 meets Hwy 88. Walked N up Horsethief Canyon, quite steep at first. Took roads up toward peak which eventually petered out and we went cross county to summit. Came back all the way along a higher elevation road (than even Cary).
