Dirty Face Peak

"It’s Not The Mountain We Conquer, But Ourselves."

Dirty Face Peak

On August 8th, we dared to hike the Dirty Face Peak. This was a brutal climb, four miles up with an elevation gain of 3,943 ft. We ended up in the clouds so we didn’t get the 360 degrees panorama view.

“How did this peak get such a distinguished name as DirtyFace? Legend has it that JS Barnard homesteaded at the base of the peak in the late 1800’s. He worked avidly clearing his land and burning brush day in and day out. Passers by often found him with a sweaty, soot covered face. He came to be known as “old dirty face” and the peak behind his homestead stands as a testament to his nickname.”
