Riding Description

I was shocked when we go to the top of this mountain.  I would have never believed there was pine and aspen trees up there in the middle of the desert.  There is also a big sink hole.  Going west on trail 1 there is one very steep part almost vertical that you will need 4x4 and maybe a winch.  Going around to the north east is much easier.  The climb to the top is a little steep in places.

Elevation 5,400 to 9,000 feet.

Extra Information:

Leave all gate the way you found them.  There are a lot of old mines in the area.  Don’t go into them they are not safe.  There is a lot of abandent mining equipment that is fun to explore.  At the top the is a short hiking trail that will give you view of the whole valley.
