We'll hike the Bristlecone trail till we get to a little known trail that will take us up to the upper upper Bristlecone trail. This is where a huge grove of bristlecone pine grow. We'll then hike along a ridge line with incredible views of Mummy Mountain and Mt. Charleston, over to the Bonanza trail. From there, several routes will become available.
Hike will be 5-6 miles long, with 1200' of gain. Pace will be moderate, and there will be no scrambling. Temperature will be 30 degrees cooler than Las Vegas. Bring 1-2 quarts of liquid, and lunch.
Don't forget your windbreaker, camera, and sense of adventure.
