Took the 4×4 trail to the top of the Ridge, past the main trail head. On this mountain, not a great idea because the trail across Tigger Peak is not as well defined and I believe it made the hike a little more challenging. Was hiking with my brother and his girlfriend. They ended up just going to the top of Tigger and never going to Princeton.
If you look closely, you can see my Jeep on the top of the point.
The total trip time from here was about 4 hours but had to hustle on the way back as weather was coming in.
Nice view to the East on the way up.
