Being somewhat of a newbie, this trip report is for those who haven't done Nesmith b...

Saddle Mountain has a 360 degree view that is unrivaled in the coast range. It gets crowded ... but I think the view is worth it. Done it 3 times this year as it is a good hike for friends who want a moderate challenge. But it's really about the view. Kings Mountain would be the one if you are looki...

Re: Coldwater Peak 5-31-2015

You really gotta pick your poison with this hike. Spring or Fall with an eye towards the forecast. Happy Trails! In "normal" years you cannot really do Coldwater Peak till July unless you are willing to face lots of scary steep snow on the last stretch up to the summit! Fall (September) hikes in th...

I did the South Coldwater trail up to Coldwater Peak yesterday May 31 with two buddies. Last day of May and it was hot. The sun was pretty brutal most of the day too. Br...
