Superstition Peak Loop, Carmey-Hieroglyphic

I'm going to host a hike in tandem to Charles's training hike on Saturday April 20th,  the Superstition Peak Loop.

I've been wanting to loop trails around Superstition Peak for sometime and the time has come.  The loop begins at the Hieroglyphic TH and uses the Lost Goldmine, Carney Springs, and Heiroglyphic trails to complete the loop.

The loop is estimated at about 16 miles and a little more than 3000 feet in elevation gain.  We will meet up with Charles' group somewhere along trail, and I will post trail links and driving directions when I have access to a desktop computer.

Trail specs:

Length:  about 16 miles

Elevation gain:  a little over 3000 feet

Dog friendly:  only to dogs very accustomed to dry, desert hiking only (zero water on trail and very rough terrain for paws)

Trail skills needed:  this is an advanced hiker route and good route finding ability, experienced at desert hiking in rough terrain, and able to descend a class III scramble skills are required.

What you need:  sufficient water (at least 3 liters), snacks/food and protection from the elements (I.e. sun protection).  There is no water on trail and no shelter.

    Driving directions: follow US 60 East to South Kings Ranch Road. Kings Ranch Road is 14.1 miles east of Power Road for reference. Turn North on Kings Ranch Rd and follow to 2.8 miles to Baseline. Turn East on Baseline and follow 0.2 miles to Mohican. Turn North onto Mohican and follow 0.4 miles to Valleyview Road. Turn West onto Valleyview and follow (naturally turns North, and turns into Whitetail Road) for 1.4 miles. At the intersection of Whitetail Rd. and Cloudview Road turn East and follow 0.4 miles to the end.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
