Ascent Trip Report

I decided to hike to the Lookout and the unnamed hill above from my family's rented vacation home on Gonowabie Drive near the lake shore. The trip to the lookout was very comfortable; the whole trip was on paved roads. The lookout point has restroom facilities but they weren't open during this trip. The vistas from the point were very nice. The trek to Peak 7350 begins down the road from the lookout point with a rather obvious dirt trail headed up hill. The trail is very clearly marked up until the trail moves from the east side of the ridge to the west. There is an ess curve at this point and to get to the peak, one needs to keep to the ridge. There are a number of different lines up the hillside here, all of which seem sufficient. If you go beyond the ess curve, you can get back to the ridge line by using a steep rocky stair trail on the east side of the trail. Ultimately, the trail ends on a flat topped hill with a rocky outcrop on the east side which I estimate to be the high point. The views of the lake and surroundings are magnificent. Heading down the hill, I biased to the west as that is where the more established trail is. If you were to start the hike at the fire road gate, it would probably by around a mile and a half round trip. They are easy miles and well worth the hour or so it would take you.
