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.
