| Elevation:||4422 ft / 1347 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDid a couple of peaks in Red Rock Canyon. I was looking for a shorter way to get up to the ridge. I saw the Patrick O’Neil went up a canyon. I tried to follow his track, but couldn’t find a way through a wall of brush. I decided to do couple of peaks on the floor of Red Rock. Lost Creek is a nice little hike. I didn’t see any way to get past the headwall to get up that canyon.
After Lost Creek, Pine Creek trail was next. No Peakbagger point on this trail. Next I did a peak that is outside the park, The Knoll. It was basically a road walk up to the base then a short, steep hike to the summit. Nice views from the top. I was following Steven Thompson track. I was going to do a couple of others but the wind picked up and it was gusting 60 – 70 mph.
