Raintree - with a big twist and a medium twist

We all love Raintree, but the trail up and back down can get boring after a few times. That's where the big twist comes in, an entirely new way up. It will challenge you, but we'll take our time going up. Most of the way, we'll be in a beautiful bristle cone forest.
Then, to further eliminate any time on the regular trail, we'll take Wildhorse Canyon down. If you haven't been there, it is a beautiful and magical place.
Hike will be 5-6 miles, with 1600' of gain. Pace will be moderate, and there will be no scrambling.
Temperature on hike will be 30 degrees cooler than Las Vegas.
Bring 2 quarts of water, and lunch.
Don't forget your windbreaker, camera, and sense of adventure.

    Where is this? Sounds beautiful! Would it be appropriate for a 1 year old in backpack?
