Visit Yerba Buena Springs, Mt McKinley, Mendenhall Ridge

  • We will start hiking on dirt Gold Creek Rd, near Trail Canyon. The road goes up nicely, past a water tower, then to a faint trail down to YB Springs. I expect it'll be flowing by now, so we will pay it a visit. Next we will push on through the road, requiring some bushwhacking on the north slopes of Mc Kinley, but we will first attain Mendenhall Ridge "summit" - it should provide excellent views (and we can decide to visit a nearby unnamed peak, but we probably won't).

    On the way back, we could visit Mt McKinley, which is on the LPC list of the sierra club.

    Stats: 15 miles, 4000' gain. [approx]
