Over the weekend went up a climb to a place called Red Top mountain. Located on one of the highest points in Sierra Nevada mountain range is a fire watch-out station for the original Transcontinental Railroad which was built in the late 18th century. Elevation over 7500 ft.
Located about 70 miles from Sacramento, off of Eagle Nest exit on I-80. Awesome trail, few stream crossings, alot of rock and some mud towards the top of the mountain. Trail was pretty challenging at times, rear locker helped quite a bit.
Next time would love to trek up this thing with few other rigs, perfect day trip and maybe stay the night. Saw many perfect places to camp for the night.
Any ways here are some pics
Pictures dont do justice, this part was extremely steep
Still some snow left over all the way on top.
