Topo and GPS tracks for today's 12.5 mi/4300ft gain outing from the Ebbetts Pass PCT trailhead to Highland Peak.   This was my 2nd trip down into Noble Canyon- the first was for a snowy early season ascent of Tryon Peak in 2008.

Got to the trailhead a little after 9.  Bunch of cars at the trailhead- but I'd only see one other party all day.  The trailhead is a bit off of the PCT itself and requires following a short spur trail to reach the PCT proper.

Spur trail sign.  0.Z miles to the PCT.  (And I hopefully will avoid contracting the plague today)

Junction of the spur trail and the PCT.  Right turn heads north across Hwy 4 and into the Mokulumne Wilderness.  South (my route) heads toward Noble Canyon and the Carson-Iceberg wilderness.  (Though at this specific point, the Northbound PCT is heading south and vice versa)

First view of both Silver and Highland.  I had originally considered the Silver traverse along with Highland- but the weather took a turn over the course of the afternoon.
