This isolated piece of red and white swirled sandstone in the midst of the Great Basin Desert offers a wide variety of backcountry desert experiences.
From ancient lava flows to narrow ridges and isolated slick rock bowls that harbor brooding silences. The scenery back here is intense, the sense of remoteness extreme, and the landscapes continually inspire reflection.
The hike will gain 1,500 feet in the first half as we attain a beautiful ridge line and the top of a peak. The looping descent traverses canyons, bowls, and drainages, which offer sweeping views of the desert and mountain ranges which surround this beautiful and inspiring area.
