Ascent Trip Report

Went the Northern Route by way of Corn Creek Road. There is a great new Visitor Center (Feb 2014 open) there now that you can leave your cars if you want to congregate into one. Friendly staff, neat and clean. The Mormon Well road really tested my mid level SUV but a high clearance or a med-high SUV should make it fine.

This is nearly all trail, it's about a nine mile out and back. It's a burner though there are some steep climbs and its slightly loose so it may test your cardio. Took us about four hours at a fairly brisk pace. Cool views on Vegas from a side you probably won't see too often.
Summary Total Data
    Total Elevation Gain:2025 ft / 617 m

    Quality:7 (on a subjective 1-10 scale)
