  • Site Description:"The two forks of the old Pyramid creek mining trail have been re-opened and some new routes roughly cleared and marked with red metal tags beyond the ends of the old trails. The main or North-East fork(stay right at the junction above the creek crossing) ends at an old mining camp(6800 feet) from which a marked route continues up the valley to a small meadow (route divides here). From here the route is marked to the East where in 15 minutes you traverse lovely little meadows to a shallow tarn. If you continue above the tarn you can ascend a steep talus slope (loose rock!) to the pass looking down Matthew creek. The route also has been marked from the small meadow to the West where in about an hour you will climb grassy slopes to the pass looking down into the North fork of Pyramid creek. Old mine prospects abound. From Pyramid pass you can traverse yet more talus to pick up a marked route on the South side of a prominent tongue of avalanche swept trees. This route continues down between the trees and the talus until it eventually leads to the upper end of the North fork trail which in turn takes you back down to the main trail. An interesting and challenging hike for those comfortable with rough ground and lots of vertical." From trailpeak.com
