23.5 miles of hiking • 5500' elevation gain • 2 nights

Started trip from the Snowgrass TH and made camp on the bypass trail above Snowgrass Flats. Had got an early start so my goal for the remaining afternoon was to head up the PCT and summit Old Snowy. The trail up Old Snowy was snow free and it's an easy scamble to the summit which has exceptional 360 degree views. The next day again got an early start and made camp at Goat Lake a bit before noon. That afternoon hiked up to the old fire lookout location on Hawkeye Peak. Again exceptional 360 degree views. The next day hiked out via the Goat Ridge Trail but not before bagging one further fire lookout location on Goat Ridge.
