This is a short mile-and-a-half trip from the end of the road to the summit of Blue Peak, the highest peak in the Blue Range Primitive Area.

Finally figured out that this hike actually involves hiking a mile on the McKittrick Trail before heading up the unnamed spur trail that leads to the peak. The Blue Lookout Trail is actually a separate trail that drops from McKittrick to the Blue cabin ruins site in the drainage north of the peak that connects to KP #70. It appeared to be very overgrown and littered with post-fire deadfall.

The views from this peak are great. The tower is old and decommissioned. The windows are broken and the first flight of stairs have been removed. There's water in the old cistern on the summit, but there is no sign of the benchmark or reference marks that should be there.
