Solitude on Maiden Peak

Peak SummitedMaiden PeakTrailheadMaiden Peak trailheadLoved this hike! Nice dirt trail, mostly gradual elevation gain, and a 360 degree view at the top. We started a bit after 9:30 am and didn’t see a soul on the trail. Not even any other cars parked. Would definitely do this hike again. Users who liked this:
