Juniper Peak - A Moderate Branch Hike

Juniper Peak is the first route to a named peak in Red Rock Canyon I found. It still remains as one of the best moderate hikes in Red Rock. It has a bit of everything: a trail to warm up on, bouldering through a wash, and some easy scrambling. It's a scenic hike too! The route passes by the 1,200 foot Rainbow Wall, the 600 foot Brownstone Wall and the Grand Canyon

How tough is this hike? It's tougher than White Rock Springs Peak. It's easier than Mescalito, White Rock Hills Peak and Bridge Mountain. The pace will be moderate, not fast.
Please, no slow hikers. It's not fun to stop and wait several times during a hike. NO dogs or kids. If you are a beginner, but in very good shape, then this is the hike to do. Depending on what time we are on the summit, some of us might hike down to Shark Boulder. The others who remain on Juniper Peak can get a great photo of us on Shark Boulder. I have wanted to do this for some time now. This hike will be canceled if it's bad weather. There are too many nice days to hike in crappy weather.

    I so enjoy this hike----too bad I had knee issues that interfered w/ the leg work, and thank goodness, not the total enjoyment of the day and people. Thanks Jen, for the "meds!" Thank you Branch, for your leadership!
