Hawkins Mountain from the west

From the trailhead (see driving directions) we immediately went off trail and headed up the ridge to our SE (the one just S of Camp Creek). The first 100 feet or so was snowy with very mild bushwacking, but it soon opened up so that we could usually avoid brush. Once the ridge became pronounced at around 5,200' the route to the west summit of Hawkins Mountain was a straight-forward ridge walk (we were kicking steps in the snow by around 6,200') and the views were out.
