Camp Robber Peak

Camp Robber Peak is a strenuous scramble, moderately challenging, with 5,200 feet of elevation gain in 14 miles. It lies in the Central Cascades, in an area with multiple alpines lakes and rugged terrain.


Take Big Heart Lake Trail No. 1064 past Trout Lake and Copper Lake to Little Heart Lake. If snow obscures trail to Big Heart Lake, recommend heading along the east or west shore of Little Heart Lake (east shore is less brushy and easier assuming it is not too icy). If you go along west shore it will be necessary to rise above the shore in places.  From southwest side of Little Heart Lake head up gully to saddle at 5,140 ft. From saddle head southeasterly skirting Big Heart Lake and pick up ridge leading to summit at approximately 4,800 ft.  Then head southwest to peak.


If snow is not present at Little Heart Lake it might be easier to take trail to Big Heart Lake and from the most northerly point of the lake head southwesterly along the northwest side of the lake.  It will be necessary to traverse above the lake on wooded ledges.  Go around the most westerly part of the lake and head east to pick up the ridge leading to summit at approximately 4,600-4,800 ft.  Then head southwest to peak.
