It had been a while since I had been on Mazzy Peak, so I decided to do this one once again.

This time we headed up Barnhardt and came back on Y-Bar.

We stopped at Big Kahuna Falls and hung out for a while. There was decent water flow there, but not as much as a few weeks ago.

We went up the drainage on the north side to the normally dry falls. By the time we got there we were dealing with some snow and ice. Once past the falls, we headed up for a ridgeline. The climb was crazy steep and I would not do that again. Being on the north side, there was some snow in places.

There are great views at the summit. We stayed for a while but then it started to get cold and windy, so we made our descent down to the Y-Bar Trail. It is a lot easier going down than coming up in that direction.

The Y-Bar trail was miserable as ever, but at least it was not overgrown. The Barnhardt Trail is going to need some trail maintenance in places before too much longer.
