Winter Scramble - Dixie Peak

Trip

Winter Scramble - Dixie Peak

(Bad weather alternate to our original Aurora Peak venue due to hazardous driving conditions). Although approaching via the pedestrian Old Si Trail, this traverse between Blowdown and Dixie provides a great workout (12 miles, 5000’ gain) with some nice alpine terrain.
