Bushnell Peak  
Condition Updates  
Route: West ridge
Posted On: 2021-11-23, By: desertdog
Info: Dry the whole way. The road is in pretty good shape. Bushnell is the easy part. The traverse over to Twin Sisters is longer than it looks and the decent back into the basin is a sufferfest. Give yourself plenty of time.

Route: West Ridge
Posted On: 2019-11-12, By: supranihilest
Info: I parked at a multi-junction parking area near CR-57. The maze of roads to treeline is almost entirely dry. Once in the trees the snow begins and gets deeper as one ascends. I broke trail the vast majority of the way up the old road with snow being anywhere from supportive crust to ankle to knee deep sugar. Trail runners got me up and down Bushnell and Twin Sisters but waterproof/more appropriate footwear would have been better. Once above treeline the road comes to an end and the steep slog up the northern side of the west ridge began. There's ample snow on the northern aspects of most Sangre mountains, Bushnell included. At times I was practically crawling through sugar snow on top of talus. It did dry out the higher I went but was tedious. I "descended" via Twin Sister, so see the conditions report for that or descend the way you came up.

Info: Ferguson Creek -> Bushnell -> Twin Sisters North -> Ferguson Creek is entirely summer conditions and free of snow. The Ferguson Creek trail has an extremely large blockage about a mile from the trailhead, but the trail does continue on the other side of the massive pile of trees and is worth refinding. I added a picture of the Ferguson Creek trailhead sign, as well as the gap in the fence through which the trail continues just east of the trailhead. 
Route: Hayden Pass
