We start at Summit Point (6,500′) and hike 8 miles and up 2,000′ over Nip and Tuck passes to our camp above Crater Lake where we will spend 3 nights. On our first layover day there is an optional hike up towards the ridge between Red Mountain and Granite Mountain in the morning and a picnic lunch at Crater Lake and swimming, fishing and relaxing in the afternoon. On our second layover day there is an optional day hike to Corral Creek Basin for lunch and then meandering through the meadows to the north. On our last day we hike out to Summit Point.
