Ascent Trip Report***Private Hike with my friend
Peaks: Middle Hawkins (8,505'), Sadie Hawkins (8,047'), and South Mount Hawkins LO (7,783') in that order.
Stats: 6.7 mi RT, +3,050' gain (+1,825' TO / +1,225' BACK)
Route: Non-published route --> started up cross-country on a southeast ridge (starting point about 2.34 mi past (west of) Dawson Saddle). Ridge intersects with PCT within 0.83 mi at elevation ~8,500'. From there we traveled 0.25 miles on the PCT west to the intersection with the Hawkins Ridge Trail. After summitting Middle Hawkins we continued to stay on the ridgeline going cross-country all the way to South Mount Hawkins (didn't bother with the trails or the 3N07 road). On the way back, at the saddle between Sadie Hawkins and South Mount Hawkins, we took the Hawkins Ridge Trail to the PCT.
