Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / Spring 2011: Mojave National Preserve and area bicycle camping / Day 2: McCullough Mountains hike, South McCullough Mountains Wilderness, Nevada 79

Day hike into the McCullough Mountains to two unnamed peaks (6557 and 6425) from a campsite near Pine Spring. I was hoping to do this hike last spring, but ran out of time. 9.2 hiking miles plus about 2200 feet of elevation gain.

I'll drink a bit more than two litres of water, and see a bluejay, a few lizards, and a couple of jackrabbits. Otherwise, the day will be rather quiet critter-wise. I won't see any people today.
