Trail: Cloudburst Summit to Winston Ridge, Bump 6903, and Winston Peak.

Description: Follow the Pacific Crest Trail down canyon crossing the dirt road about a mile along the trail and continue past the saddle on the north side of Winston Peak, to the unmarked junction with the north hiker’s trail around Bump 6903 (the small peak that shares the saddle with Winston Peak). Take that trail around Bump 6903 and continue past the next saddle up to Winston Ridge. Return to the saddle with Bump 6903 and follow the faint hiker’s trail up to Bump 6903 and then down to the saddle with Winston Peak. At the saddle, follow the steep north hiker’s trail up to Winston Peak and return to Cloudburst Summit by taking the more gradual south hiker’s trail back down to the parking area.
