The following is Rick Baugher’s trip notes:

On 10/20/01, midway through a multiple-peak day, I dirt biked east over Freeman Pass (7,630 feet), then continued south on FSR-145. Parked near Hill Spring (7,900 feet). From this vicinity, it was an easy cross-country hike, ascending west, to “Spike Peak” (8,716 feet elevation; 946 feet of prominence). On top, noted a surveyor’s spike driven into the cherty limestone summit outcrop.

View to south slope of Spike Peak on 7/20/14. A spike or rebar stake is sometimes suggestive of a privately conducted mineral or timber survey. Rick Baugher Photo
