Black & White Sisters - 9/18/18

Archive Photo of Black & White Sisters (2015)

Tough Ascent Wash (Keep Smiling!)
 Eleven hikers drove out Macks Canyon Road to the Sisters Spur Road and parked. (Must remember to start up the road until you reach the correct wash!) At the trail marker placed at a wash junction next to a ponderosa, we turned to the left to hike up a pine cone filled wash. Although this wash is not as steep as the final climb, it is a tough climb. We turned to the right onto a vague trail that follows the approach ridge. Take note of the landmark tree at the end of the ridge before you start the final very steep climb up to the ridge above. Then go and meet Black Sister; White Sister is a small rise next to her. For a more detailed description of the hike, see one of the previous blogs on this site. Great people!

4 miles; 1650 feet elevation gain; 2.5 hours
