Ascent Trip Report

I drove in about 5 miles from Highway 88 on Burnside Lake Road, which is passable to most vehicles with some ground clearance. Next, I day hiked up a 4x road to the northeast side of the peak, then went up an intermittent use trail to the top. Afterward, I made my way over to Pickett Peak-East Peak and then Picket Peak, which are both class 2, then headed back to the car via Hawkins Creek. I followed an old 4x road down the creek, which eventually ended, then I bushwhacked further down the creek to Burnside Lake road, then made my way back to the car. Trip stats and GPS track include ascents of Pickett Peak-East Peak and Picket Peak.
