Comments
Comments: Got an early start for a hike to this 4.293 foot mountain. Weather-wise a spectacular day with clear skies and little wind. The true summit is off the trail about 90 feet. I had two waypoints for the true summit – one from the latest Forest Service Map and the other from Caltopo – which were 50 feet apart. The bushwhack to the summit was relatively easy. When travelling south on the Davis Path I found it best to continue a short ways beyond the summit waypoints where it was easy to enter the woods heading west and then north to a small but obvious rise and the summit. The Forest Service map had a more accurate summit “X”. I hiked back the way I had come. Total actual hike distance: 8.8 miles rt. Total time hiking: 6:52. Vertical ascent: 4,365 ft., descent: 4263 ft.. Maximum slope: 31 degrees. Maximum altitude reached: 5,155 ft. (a total of 1724 additional feet of climbing is required to reach North Isolation via this route)
