Walt Hill Trail (SCT)
View north from Walt Hill in the Smith Range at the Walt Hilton Emergency Shelter. Dodd Lake in the Horseshoe Valley in the mid-distance with the Rainbow Range and Eldred Valley beyond. Road approach extremely eroded conditions with bolders in the middle of the road in some places. Oilpan assassins. The trail up to Walt Hill is in good condition. Last weekend there was snow up above the 1000m level - up to a foot near the top. Trail to Pentstemmon Bluff is clear. No ill effects of the recent hurricane strength winds in this area. Trail is well marked as it was cleared by the crew last month. Hike recommended.
