Mill Creek Trail to Breckenridge Mtn Extreme hike

  • May 19, 2013 · 6:00 AM
  • Mill Creek Trailhead - 1.5 Miles East of Hwy 178

Extreme Fit Hikers only

I don't know if this has ever been attempted before but Im going to give it a shot. We will meet at the TH at 6am-ish and head to the Breckenridge Lookout, I don't know if the tower is open or not. We will be on the trail for about 7 miles when we reach Squirrel Mdw then we cross Breckenridge Rd and hike on FS Road 28SO7 for another 4 miles until we reach the summit to enjoy the views. With it being hot it is important to bring lots of water and electrolytes as there wont be any running water up there I assume.  This hike is a good conditioning hike for backpacking trips and any kind of High Sierra hiking like those 14ers we all like to bag!!

Elevation Gain: 5178ft

Elevation of Breckenridge Mtn: 7548ft

Total one-way mileage: 11 to 12 miles

    No problem Alice wish you could have been there, you and Rafael. It took me 5andhalf hours from the TH to the summit the trail was easy to follow other then two downed oak trees and some overgrown brush at the 6 mile mark that need a little clearing, will email Forest Service about it. Total mileage: 26

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
