Update

A beautiful trail with great views and wildlife leads to the summit of Bonanza Peak.

Overview

Snow in winter.
This is a great trail with very light traffic. If you want to get out into the solitude of nature this is a great place to start.

Description

This is a great trail with very little traffic. I saw more wild horses than people. Though you'll begin your run on the Bonanza Trail, please be aware that the trail does not lead to Bonanza Peak. You need to exit the trail and follow the Bonanza Peak Summit Spur as it climbs a few hundred yards to the peak. The route is well cairned. When you feel the switchbacks start to descend off the ridge line look for the cairns. There are a lot of trees on the peak but that doesn't stop the magnificent views of Mt. Charleston and the Spring Mountains.

Once you've enjoyed the summit, you can return the way that you came. If you're seeking a longer adventure after the summit, you can continue on the Bonanza Trail as it heads back south.

Flora & Fauna

Wildflowers, bristlecone pines, wild horses, roadrunners, and chipmunks.
