Just drove up this time. Very brisk New Year's afternoon
Trail from Robb Drive, left at fork up steep ridge to "five points", crossed road then up the AT&T Ridgeline to summit. Took a slightly different route down to mix it up. Great views in all directions. 8.8 Miles R/T.
3000' of gain from the residential cul-de-sac at the end of Diamond Ridge Rd.
Driving up Peavine Rd is cheating :)
Pics and commentary are here.
Drive up very good quality road to summit, went to lower summit first by mistake, then drove over to higher summit.
Great climb, really steep in sections, lots of deer. Worth the effort.
Drove a rental Toyota Corrolla to within a mile of the top. The r/t hike took 45 minutes. The day was cloudy, breezy with drizzle, so I didn't want to chance the roads any more than I had to in my little car. Despite the conditions, I enjoyed this peak.
Got off 395N near Cold Springs, there's an empty parking lot on the left side of highway. Parked there and trekked up the north ridges which eventually came to trail. A clear day, enjoyed a solo summit with the ipod and poles.
Drove to the top.
Parked just a couple minutes below the summits, tagged both. Fine view of Reno, a little chilly and windy on top.

Drove around half way up Peavine Road and then hiked the rest of the way to the top. Quite windy on top.
Rode up in a rental car with 3 other peakbaggers via Peavine Road. Sighted with a level to confirm that western summit is 10 to 15 feet higher. Tagged both anyway.
I hiked this mountain on a much longer route than I probably needed to take. I went up the power line trail which was very steep. I returned down the dirt road. The view of Reno and Stead is pretty sweet. Because the hike is all on dirt roads instead of hiking trail I would recommend just driving to the top. This hike kind of annoyed me actually.
good trail running area, nice views of le BLC
Is via horsepower! Ascended via Yamaha WRF250, but brought the skis the following March and made some turns on the upper bowl.
...to ride your bike. Fantastic 36 mile loop from NW Reno.
...from UNR! But a fast descent thanks to lots of running.
My big brother and his wife took me up the trail. Gave me a camelpack that I still wear.
Not much trouble, this one. Trip Report
(Almost) no snow on a crystal-clear, no-wind day in January. Wouldn't necessarily do this one solo due to its urban proximity ...
