Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / Fall 2011: Route 66 bicycle-camping—Cady Mountains, Sleeping Beauty and Kelso Dunes Wilderness / Day 2: Sleeping Beauty hike 44

4.2 hiking miles round-trip from my tent to a summit in the Sleeping Beauty range. Feels like much more because of the steep, rocky hills (approx. 1500 feet elevation gain). An almost-warm afternoon (60F), I drink about 2 litres of water and eat two energy bars.
