Trail shared by Bruce Hope

A steep, but well-graded, trail from Deadfall Summit to the top of Mount Eddy

Bruce Hope

Features Views

This trail is usually snow-covered between November and June. Late June to mid-October is the best time to use this trail. The summit can be cold and windy even if this was not the case on the trails below, so come prepared with extra clothes.

Description

This is a spur trail (USFS 6W25) between the Sisson-Callahan National Recreation Trail at Deadfall Summit and the top of Mount Eddy. It gains altitude quickly but on well-graded switchbacks that make the climb less painful. The views from Mount Eddy are absolutely worth the effort!
