  • You can do either of the peaks, or combine the two by going up one, traversing to the other, and hiking down from there. In terms of climbing, Peak 2 is easier/less steeper than Peak 3.
  • There is no official parking lot at the trailhead, and the area shares trailhead with Rabbit Lake and the backside of Flat Top. You may have to park a ways down the road if going on a popular day.
