Tabor Peak tip sheet:
1. There is a way across Lincoln Creek w/o getting wet or removing your boots. Instead of starting down the trail to cross the creek @ the TH, walk back to Lincoln Creek Rd., turn R, walk for ~1/4 mile, then turn south and cross the grassy area between the road and the creek. There are two big logs acting as a bridge over the water. There is a trail in the willows back to the main trail after crossing.
2. Turn off to go up to Tabor Lake/Tabor Peak is @ 11,600'. Small cairns on trail mark it.
3. The scree gully up to the ridge is one of the worst I've encountered. Pick your path of least suck.
4. The ridge line to the summit is airy and can be spicy. You can walk most of it, but you are perched high on a narrow band of rock, requiring some scrambling.
