Alpine Scramble - Malcolm & Johnson Peaks

Good destination for when the weather is looking foul elsewhere.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Road graded and in good condition.

Departed Johnson Medra TH #1383 at 9:15 AM. Made a clockwise loop trip, enjoying views from the ridge-tops into the Teanaway and Stuart Range. Vegetation was wet at start of hike - everyone's feet and pants got wet but soon dried in the sun. Mostly sunny day with light winds and no precipitation. Scrambled Johnson Mountain via the NW ridge. Scrambled Malcolm via the NE ridge. Spent 30 min+ on top of each summit. Scrambled and followed the "trail" and many animal trails to signed trail junction north of Point 5343. From here it was an easy hike back to the TH, finishing the loop. Returned to TH at 5 PM.
