Amazing views of the Sierras and White Mountain. It is a short 6 miler with relatively minimal elevation gain at altitude. It involves some easy off-trail scrambling and a peak with nearly unsurpassed views in all of the White Mountains. You get incredible vistas of White Mountain and the Sierras, plus you have to hike a bit off-trail to reach the 13,040' summit. It takes you only 3/4 of a mile off the main trail/road to the top.
