This little unnamed peak is located in the Pine Creek Wilderness area & sports great views & few people.  I'd been here a few times before but it'd been awhile so it was time to check it out again, & bring a couple peeps who hadn't been there before.    biggrin.gif

The hike starts out on a dirt rd., then we turned right/east on the Espinosa Trail & began our descent to Pine Creek.   smile.gif

After crossing the creek, the trail climbs & traverses the south slope of Pk. 2,643' 'til it reaches a saddle NE of Pk. 3,024'.

@ this point we left the main trail & followed an obscure route to the summit.   hink.gif

After a restful stay atop the peak, we headed back down the way we came.  @ the creek crossing we encountered a party of 3, one of whom was a LOUD TALKER who wouldn't STFU as they followed us out.  We finally had to pull over & let the LAMF pass.   shakehead.gif
