Ascent Trip Report

2012 Labor Day hiking took us next further up the Gold Lake Highway to the Gray Eagle Trailhead where we started our climb steadily past a few lakes (Sand Lake, Hidden Lake) to the summit at 7,818 ft with stunning views of the Sierra Buttes (which we climbed the day before), Jamison Lake, Long Lake, Silver Lake and many neighboring mountains. The whole hike took 5.5 hours, climbing 1,949 ft to the top. The return trip on this loop passed by Long Lake with crystal blue water. A great 9+ mile hike.
