Ascent Trip Report

When I hiked Square Top I thought Jackson Peak would also be a descent hike so I added it to the Peakbagger database (prov). Today I hiked Jackson Peak and while the hike was a little shorter than when I hiked Square Top, the hike is more strenuous. Once at the summit there were great views to the north and east away from the setting sun. The summit has a couple rocks to sit on, but it is mostly short manzanita. There is a cairn on the summit, but it is located on the eastern edge and not on the high point.
