This was the longest hike we have gone on to date. Most of the people that do the Shingle Creek loop start from higher up. This added an additional 4 miles to the trip and was well worth it for the workout. Be warned you are in for a very extreme and long hike. Make sure to bring plenty of water and snacks, you'll need it.

The views were beyond beautiful. It starts out by Lower Bogus Basin Rd. in the desert looking area and makes the way up into the mountains where you will find many different changes in scenery. Much to enjoy like Creeks to walk over and flowers and trees for day!
