Overview

Northshore Peak was very rewarding. I bought a year pass for the Lake Mead NRA and drove to Northshore Peak parking area. I then started hiking. It was a nice winter day. It was sunny and about 47ºF when I started.



The Hike

I followed the East Ridge Route to the summit.

It took about an hour or so to reach the summit. On the summit I was rewarded with views of Lake Mead, Mt. Charleston and the Spring Mountains, and much more. I had to take off my fleece sweater after about 20 minutes. The winds were very light.

On the summit there was no register. I ended up putting a register in a plastic zip lock bag with a few sheets of paper underneath the big rock on the summit. I attached a picture of it below with the view on the summit. If you end up going up there take a summit log with you.

It was also my 30th birthday today. It was well worth the trip.
