A second trip that included all three peaks (Freel, Jobs, Jobs Sister) from Willow Creek can be found here.

Topo and GPS tracks for today's outing along the TRT out of Armstrong pass.  12 miles + 4000ft of elevation gain.   Freel and Jobs Sister are my 11th and 12th Tahoe OGUL peaks.

Getting to the trailhead was a bit of an adventure.  Its about 3 miles back on a fairly rough unmarked forest road (FR51) that starts near Luther Pass on Hwy 89.  Using this trailhead saves 10+ miles vs. starting from Grass Lake or Big Meadow.  (The guy on the left started right after me, but I never saw him on the trail.)

The last half mile to the trailhead was blocked (assumably intentionally, since the bridge didn't look like it could handle auto traffic) by large rocks.  Thus, the first bit was on roadbed, including this bridged crossing of Willow Creek.

Blue TRT tags at the trailhead, but no formal sign as this is a secondary trailhead.  The first mile was steeply uphill to join the TRT proper, but I was fresh and it went quickly.

This was one of the new non-legacy portions of the TRT and as such was very gently graded.  Very nice clear warm summer day out today.

The TRT made a long single switchback in order to pick up another ~500 feet before reaching the saddle between Freel and Trimmer.
