Ascent Trip ReportStarted at the Burch fork trailhead in Millcreek. Followed Pipeline towards Elbow Fork but turned up the mountain on the signed Burch Fork trail (about 1.65 miles from the trailhead) Summit post said this was 3.1 miles one way. I had it at almost 4 miles.
The trail going up Burch gets more and more overgrown as you ascend. When you reach the ridge, there is a faint trail that goes on the North side of it but I didn't find that until the way back.
Pretty cool peak. I thought about trying to continue towards Grandeur but time was not on my side and I didn't see a trail or a good way to get there. I might have to try this from by going up Church Fork next time.
