52 Hike Challenge 2016 Hikes.

I started on January 15, 2017. I altered the rules of the challenge to include only hikes that go to at least one of the peaks in my 12-Peak Challenge. For all my hikes this year, see my 2017 Hikes Page.


Hike #11: Crystal Lake to Mt. Islip Loop. Single-peak day hike which included an extension along the PCT on my way to Mt. Hawkins to a random point where I couldn’t pass due to an icy snow patch I wasn’t comfortable trying to traverse.
