Trip

Winter Scramble - First Top & Point 4795 Loop

Beautiful mountain and sea views on very strenuous winter scramble (~11 mi, ~5,800 ft) that visits First Top as well as Point 4795 above Lake Angeles with their routes (see map) sharing a portion of the Lake Angeles trail from the Heart of the Hills Ranger Station to ~2700 ft. This shared outing is made possible by deep winter snowfall that makes cross country travel less onerous.
