Miller Peak and Iron Bear - 9.18.2015

A photo of the GPS track for our loop trip that used Miller Peak Trail #1379, a short section of off-trail travel, portions of the County Line Trail #1226, Iron Bear Trail #1351 and Teanaway Ridge Trail #1364... 12.8 miles of hiking that gained 3968 feet of elevation.
Parking at 3200 feet... we started out on Miller Peak Trail #1379 which is located at the end of FS-9703... the parking area is shared with the trailhead for the western end of Iron Bear Trail #1351.
The Miller Peak Trail follows along Miller Creek for 1.5 miles... then the terrain steepens for the next mile up to Miller's SW ridge (5200') which is shown in this photo.
The next mile or so of the Miller Peak Trail follows just below the west side of Miller's SW ridge before returning to the SW ridge for the last half-mile to the summit, which is on the right in this photo.

From the Iron Bear summit we used the Teanaway Ridge Trail to reach this junction with the Iron Bear Trail... now we will head west on the Iron Bear Trail and follow it back to our car.
