Burroughs Mountain


Day Hike - Burroughs-Sourdough-Sunrise Rim Loop

This is a photography trip not a hike: the pace will be slower with frequent stops and we will spend a significant amount of time in locations that are photographically interesting. We will start by hiking from the Sunrise parking lot along Sourdough Ridge to Dege Peak. From there we will continue on to Sunrise Point where we will finish this stretch of our day. Depending on interest, we may go on to explore other trails around the Sunrise area.
