1st trip
I've been eyeing this one for awhile now. My son was home on break, so it was a perfect day to eat away at the over eating from T-Day.

First....A big thanks to Bob Gregg, who has created and maintained the trails up here (quite recently actually). This was the first time I've hiked the northern portion of the loop and did not need GPS to guide me.

We followed the Walkin' Jim Trail at Cottonwood Creek, to the newly created Big Jim Trail.
The Big Jim Trail (Newly signed) takes off from the western most portion of the Wakin' Jim Trail.
This trail takes you to the saddle almost directly north of Peak. 3465. From here, my son and I cairned a trail to the top of the peak. It's about .6 mile to the peak. We thought we'd be one of the first to ever get to this remote peak..... but after reading the peak log that was placed in 1993...... we were the first since 2008.

Excellent 360 views from the top!

We were very lucky to stumble across a rock that was engraved with the name H T Sprouse Jan 26th 1902 (See my pictures).
So there was a 108 year span from first to last on the peak!
Saw 6 wild burros on the way back to the TH.

Great weather! Great Hike!
