We’ve led several hikes to Jerry Peak, 10,010 feet, and every one has its special adventure -- usually, dodging thunderstorms on the exposed route.

Jerry Peak is most quickly accessed via Trail Creek road, then to Sage Creek. There’s no official trail.

On this trek, our timing hit the peak of alpine wildflowers, and for once, no gale winds, or hail, or lightning bolts.

After reaching Jerry Peak -- more a rock outcrop then peak -- half the group hiked out to Twin Bridges. A highpoint - walking through a pristine whitebark pine grove. It’s a long slog from Jerry Peak to Twin Bridges to where local home owner Pat Beattie gave us a ride to our cars on Trail Creek road.
