Instead of riding/hiking from the lower ponds (crowded on weekends), try Willow Springs, Wheeler Pass, Mud Springs, Buck Naked trail, or Bonanza Trail. Heavily frequented by wild horses, elk and deer; it is extremely important to respect these animals and their precious habitat. You must be a self-sufficient desert hiker, prepared for emergencies -- it could easily be days or weeks before you see another hiker. The hills up to Bonanza Peak are covered with either wildflowers or pine trees. There are supposedly 80 switchbacks on this trail. This climb is less strenuous than either the North or South Loop trails in Mt. Charleston; but it's not a beginner's hike. There is a log book to sign at the peak, which is off a "hidden path" from the main trail. Dry hike, pack lots of water.Show more

Nice climb for great views of seldom seen valleys, canyons, and peaks This hike is definitely a climb, but it is fairly gradual and the switchbacks are not as brutal as the ones leading to Griffith Peak or Raintree. Although the trail is too narrow to safely "pony" a horse, mules or donkeys should have no problem. Is you have a loose suckling along, the slopes may be too rocky and steep for them to scamper about. Riding stock has done a great job of keep the soil hard packed on this trail, with very little loose rock or other problem areas. Keeping in mind the altitude, this is a super trail to work your animals on, and a good practice trail for your hunting horses to condition before season. Unless you have first hand knowledge of where some of the springs are located, you'd better pack all your water in. The meadows at the saddle are a very pleasant place to rest, lunch, or explore; but is not large enough to support an overnight horse camp, or grazing. Tie your horses instead of hobbling once you reach the saddle.Show more
