Hillsboro Peak

Hillsboro Peak - Carpool from KMart parking lot at 8 AM on Sat June 14. Its about a 2 to 2 1/2 hr drive to the Emory Pass trailhead west of Hillsboro. The hike is 9 or 10 miles total (out and back) and gains close to 2000 ft in elevation but is relatively gentle and good trail all the way (easier than the last one!) This hike somewhat escapes the summer heat with a summit elevation of 10100 ft. from a starting point of just over 8000 ft. Theres a fire tower on top to check out on a large grassy flat field on the summit. Group might decide to eat on the way back.

    Thought that this hike would get us out of the heat. Hope the area gets some rain and cooler temps soon.

    Enjoyed meeting folks and seeing other hiking groups up at the peak. Just wish it wasn't so hot!!
    I put 21 in the group but the meetup did join in with another group so not sure who was with what group.
