Details

Hike through the area burned by the Buffalo Creek fire in 1996 to the top of Raleigh Peak.  Part of the hike will be on a Forest Service road, and some will be off trail.  Some of the off trail will involve up and down as we navigate cross-country through the burn area.  Deer and elk are frequently seen in this area.  The last 400' or so of elevation gain to get to the top of Raleigh Peak is a little bit steep.  Scrambling up the final summit boulders is optional.  Great views from the top for miles.




Notes

Bring the 10 essentials and plenty of water.  Water sources are scarce or nonexistent on this hike.
