Map Errors

The USGS topo map shows the south side of Peak 7288 as open terrain. However, it is a mix of pine forest and very thick brush. A lodge sits at its base at the signed junction of North Trail Road and South Trail Road. The USGS topo map also incorrectly shows the north side of the peak as heavily forested when, in fact, it is an open scrub slope with an old mining road that switchbacks its way up the north face (see photo). If you can gain permission from the landowner(s), the north face is your best option to climb Peak 7288.
