Ascent Trip Report

Went with peakbagger Kath G on the partially maintained trail from Patterson Campground to start of Eagle Peak ascent. Off trail to start of ascent had to walk thru lots of sage and mule ears (I think that is what they are called). The ascent is mostly scree that is two steps forward and 1.75 back. Poles really helped. Total steps from Patterson is 23,482 steps to start of Eagle Peak ascent and 29,270 steps total from top to Patterson Guard station / Campground. Small amounts of snow on trail.

Tried to get Hat Mountain next day. Drove within 4 miles but ran out of time - next year
