Contact one of the leaders for meeting location and transportation plans (long drive to the trailhead and high clearance vehicles are required).

Pristine wilderness, classic ridge walk, panoramic views, and the white quartz mountaintop make this hike to the top of the Sierra Estrellas unique. The trail is steep and difficult in places and it will take 4 to 5 hours to complete. The last 0.3 miles require some scrambling and non-technical climbing.

Bring plenty of water, lunch, and $ for carpool. Hike will be canceled in case of rain.

Cost to non-members is $5.
