Broadwater County Highpoint Trip Report

Mount Edith

Date: August 8, 2008

Up and back in 2 hours. From my start point on the dirt road, the GPS said 2 miles to summit. My guess is it was more like 3 miles. Nice trail. I was nervous on the traverse from the false summit to the true summit because of the likelihood for lightning. Not much visibility.

I bushwhacked and rock glissaded down carefully until the end of the dirt road intersection with the trail where the sign for Edith Lake is. I think I cut half mile off my descent route. I was soaked by the time I reached the truck because it rained.
