For the Vert hungry take the Wakefield Trail! Surprisingly very runnable.
From Silverton, drive up the 4 mile creek FSR a few kms.
The Wakefield trail has an old brown sign marking the trailhead.
There is an overgrown grassy meadow to park in.
Follow the trail up as it zigzag the elevation.
There may be snow in shady sections if your attempting it early season.
Once on the ridge line it’s cruisy running to the peak! Enjoy the views and the quad bashing on the descent.
