SPITLER PEAK VIA APPLE CANYON ROAD (HURKEY CREEK)

Turn on Apple Canyon Rd off highway 74.  Parking lot on the right before the Zen center, about 2.5 miles in. Gentle start for the first few miles then switchbacks begin to challenge hikers as they bring you to the PCT.  In rainy seasons, waterfalls will be seen along the way. Head right off of the PCT where a carin will mark where to top out to Spitler Peak. In springtime through hikers will be around.

11 Miles with elevation gain of 2600 ft.
