Great winter, spring, fall or cool summer day hike. Great views of the Carson Valley. Start at the east end and hike up the south route following a drainage. When you get to saddle turn right of the sandy road and go to the old mine road which is overgrown but still and easy walk. Once you reach the old mine site you have to sidehill cross-country to western most point of hike where you meet the road that goes to the summit. From summit take ridgeline back down to a saddle where you connect with an old road to take you to the bottom. It's a little steep getting down it. From there cut across base of hill until you get back to beginningShow more
