High Point

Old Stage to the summit, South on the Kettle Crest trail, after climbing/pushing to Copper Butte, the high point of the Kettle Crest, then descend Jungle Hill to the campground.

A classic route from Kettle Fest, more difficult than the mileage or vert would imply.

The route can be extended a bit by continuing on the Crest past the Jungle Hill turnoff and on to Sherman Pass, then descending Sherman Tie instead. This adds one more small climb and miles more of descending.
