    Route Description for Scout Patrol Peak

    There are memorable mountain views to be seen from Scout Patrol Peak, and this all-season trail often has very few hikers on it. There is a little bit of a scramble to the top, but it’s nothing too precarious.

    The hike begins from the trailhead parking area. If you come in the winter, you may have to hike in further from the gate closure on the road. The trail wraps in a wide arc to the east on an old logging road. You’ll reach a junction with an abandoned forest road, and you’ll stay right here.

    A handful of wide switchbacks lead you up to the peak, making the elevation gain fairly manageable. When you reach the base of the rock field, you’ll find that it’s quite a stable scramble without any significant challenges.

    Enjoy the views from the peak before retracing your steps back to the trailhead.
