Barker Pass to Sierra City

July 1st, 2012

A very important piece of info about this section – At around 1148 on Halfmile’s maps one summits an ascent to reach Tinker Knob. At the top of the ascent is a signed junction. If coming from the south, the apparent correct direction of travel is down the other side towards Truckee. DO NOT GO THIS WAY!! Go left to reach Anderson’s Peak (if hiking from the South). The signage is confusing and the direction of travel appears to be to go down (I was not the only one to make this mistake). If you go down you will be very much off-trail!
