Ascent Trip Report

It is a long drive into the desert to get to this trailhead. I approached Trinity Pk from I-80, exit 106 in Lovelock. Take Main St west about .5 mile to N. Meridian and turn right. I went north on N. Meridian about 1.5 miles to Pitt Rd (NV 399). This is a good paved road heading west. At about 11.8 miles turn right on good dirt signed Seven Troughs/Sulfur road. In about 5 miles on this road take the left fork and in another 3.4 miles the road takes a sharp left and heads up to a pass in the Seven Troughs Range. On the other side of the range at about 19.3 miles from NV 399 I passed a corral on my left and in antoher 1.5 miles I turned right on an unsigned road that headed north up the Hannan/Seven Troughs valley. At 5.8 miles I stayed straight and in another hundred yards ignored the road going left. I stayed on this road for another 2.75 miles to Hannan Springs.

I parked at the springs and car camped for the night. No one bothered me except a herd of cows who were thirsty. In the morning I started hiking west up the ravine past Hannan Springs. I had only gone about 300 yds when I came to where 2 forks in the drainage came together. I west between them straight up the west ridge towards the summit. Easy hiking in open country. At the top of the ridge, there is a little dip and then up to a little higher ridge. The summit is off to the right on a rocky protrusion. The summit register was placed in 1999 by Barbara Lilly and Gordon Macleod. They used a hand level to veify this was the highest point along the ridge. I was the 6th person to sign the register since 1999. Great views.
