My first hike up to Quartz Peak.
It's a great hike.

Since HAZ is full of 'Quartz' triplogs, there's not much I can add.

The only thing I did, out of the norm for a 'Quartz Hike' is, I casually looked for some benchmarks that were possibly near the trail. I found nothing. They aren't published anywhere - Just a TOPO map symbol. Possibly not even a disk, but just a carving in a boulder. Next time, I'll devote more time to search for them.

I did locate an Army War Dept disk (1949), with those four 25 foot long panels surrounding the disk.
The disk is in perfect shape, but the four panels are almost invisible now.
One of the panels is literally 3 or 4 feet from the road, adjacent to Sevenmile Mtn, when coming into Rainbow Valley from the south.

Great weather, with a nice breeze - An excellent workout, and a fun trail.
