Details

Windy Peak is in Golden Gate Canyon State Park.  We will start at the Bridge Creek Trailhead, elevation approx 7800 feet, and take the Burro Trail to the summit at about 9100 feet.  We should have good views on the way up and from the summit.  After lunch we will descend on the Mountain Lion Trail and then connect to the Burro Trail back to the cars.  




Notes

This trip is for RMOTHG members.

There is an entry fee to the park so members with a park pass are encouraged to drive.  Otherwise the entry fee will be split by those in the car.

I am not planning a social stop after the hike.

This is an exploratory hike for the leader.  I have been to Windy Peak via another route and hiked in the area but not the exact route I am planning.
