Smith Mountain
by

This was a awesome hike to Smith Mountain. This hike does involve scrambling , but nothing to hard ( Nothing like Strawberry Peak). Make sure you wear proper shoes and take your time. The fun factor is definitely high and there are some tricky parts. I would say its Class 2.5 almost Class 3. Make sure you take lots of water and some snacks. The elevation gain from the Smith Saddle to the top is around 800 feet of gain. The views are awesome and I would definitely do this hike again! This is also part of the Sierra Clubs Hundred Peaks Section.

Started our hike at 6am. A bit chilly, but worth it because a lot of people show up as it gets warmer. You'll get your feet wet.

I've done this trail a couple of times now and its definitely worth the time investment! The river crossings are fun and help prevent this route from getting monotonous.

My partner & I LOVED this hike and can not wait to go back! Be prepared to balance yourself on tree stumps & rocks every time you cross through the stream or you can guarantee you will soak your shoes. In some spots trails are unnoticeable, but this is what made the hike exciting and fun.

Crystal Lake to Mt. Islip Trail
by

The trail begins by some campsites and soon rises high above the Crystal Lake Basin. Once you reach the ridge at Windy Gap, you can see a rapid current of air pushing the fog over the pass. In February, the wind is strong and frigid and possibly accompanied by hail that hits your face. After trudging through some snow-covered patches, there’s a brief respite on the south side of the ridge, where you can warm up your reddened knuckles and cheeks. After the final turn, you see the summit hut remnants. The plants are dusted with frost and the underside of the tree branches sag a bit with the accumulated snow. On the way back, I see a tiny twig with a bit of bright green moss, which was one of my landmarks on the way up among all that monochromatic snow.
