Strenuous off trail hike
by MtnGeek

This small mountain sits at the north end of Locket Meadow. Its elevation is 9,238, being the smallest mountain in the San Francisco Peaks. It is a dull looking lava dome that does not get much attention; not many people hike it. Most People go into Locket Meadow to hike into the Inner Basin. It is a steep climb that is well worth it. It has the best views looking into to the San Francisco Peaks bowl.

To climb it you can pick any part of the mountain and head up through the open timber. The mountain is almost perfectly round and any part of the mountain is going to be equally steep. The top is flat and gives wonderful views.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
