Silver Lake (Monte Cristo)

Hiked up to Silver lake Saturday afternoon after getting lucky with a great parking spot in a very full parking lot. Very busy at the Lake, and an amazing weather window. Great weekend!

Hiked up to Silver lake Saturday afternoon after getting lucky with a great parking spot in a very full parking lot. Took about 3.5 / 4 hrs car to camp at Silver. A lot of camp spots, but it was a very busy weekend up there. Saturday had mixed clouds with a low ceiling blocking all views. No mosquitos, but a lot of annoying gnats. Woke up Sunday to perfect blue skies. Took in all the scenery! We had a strong group so we did an easy scramble up to the South summit of Silvertip Peak.

  • Car to Camp 3.5 hrs
