Ascent Trip Report

We parked just above the campground area, and after walking the short distance up to Grouse Ridge and the lookout, we started for Fall Creek Mountain. This was a fun hike, on good trails although all downhill (meaning uphill to finish the hike). We left the trail where we saw some decent use trails through the brush, and essentially followed use trails to the summit.

After we continued on the Crooked Lakes Trail, aiming to bag Peak 7264 which was a couple miles further. I had the FS TOPO on my phone and the trail diverted from the map, going down towards a couple of small lakes rather than staying high as shown on the map. As such we were worried about time and doing cross country in the dark, so we turned around. After I got home I saw that the OSM Map accurately depicts the trail and its new alignment, and we were on it the whole way. I wasn't too disappointed, as we can get PK 7264 from Bowman Mountain next year.
