Details

Meet at Meadow mountain at 6:00 to carpool. Drive to shortcut trailhead for HolyCross City jeep road (near the Fancy Lake  trailhead). Hike on jeep road and Fall Creek Pass trail to top of pass. Hike off trail to summit. Elevation gain about 3000 feet - about 5.5 miles (11 round trip). If weather holds and we are so inclined we can visit Holy Cross City ghost town on the way down (it is about another mile).
