Alpine Scramble - Mutton Mountain


Alpine Scramble - Mutton Mountain

Scramble via the Deep Creek trail with great views on top if the weather cooperates.

  • Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,700 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 6,156 ft


This trip is mostly on trail, so it may not count as scramble credit for students, check with your Activity Chair. Some sections of the trail are rough and eroding, particularly in the burned area.  I may change the date to June 2nd (Sunday) if the forecast is better.
