Park Creek Road, FS-140 and the Trail Creek Loop Trail, FST-126 [(B)(1)(a) Page 242]. The Trail Creek Loop Trail, FST-126 has not been maintained in many years. Furthermore, trail is not in the location shown on the FS topographic map. See the map below. The tread is easy to follow until roughly 9,000 feet. After that point, there are cairns marking the route until treeline. Expert route finding skills are recommended.
North Ridge, Class 2
From the upper reaches of the West Fork Trail Creek, climb to the saddle between Murdock and Hemingway Peaks. A steep goat trail switchbacks up to the ridge top. Once on the ridge you can follow goat trails on the west side of the ridge most of the way to the summit or stay directly on the ridge crest. The south ridge of Hemingway Peak can also be easily climbed from the saddle.
