This ridge is best done south to north and is about three miles long. The route follows the ridge the entire way. I recommend getting dropped off and arrange for a pickup at Rail Road Pass Casino or bring two cars, leaving a second car at the Pass.


From the US93/95 junction go south on U95 for three miles (two from the new freeway) to Spring Canyon Rd. Turn right on this dirt road and follow it past the gravel pits for two miles to the foot of the mt.


Good shoes, sunhat.


You guys did this in August?!! I just did it today, May 5, and it was pretty darn hot! I thought it was a great ridge traverse with mostly solid rock and not much scree and saw 6 bighorn sheep!. Due to the road construction and the pedestrian bridge connecting to the bike path (and the Railroad Casino) being closed, I bailed off early at the last northern high point (6 foot cairn and summit register) and followed a cairned trail north west toward Henderson and got picked up at Nevada State College. Thanks for posting this ridge traverse! May 5, 2018
