Started at the Villager trailhead, up Smoke Tree Canyon to Pyramid, then Rosa, Mile High, Villager and down the ridge. Long day (and night), perfect weather, awesome views.
Up the ridge and over Marble Point. Virtually no breeze. Hiked out of Palo Verde Canyon by headlamp and drove to the Spectre Point area for the next day.
This was part of a month long solo peakbagging trip in which I hiked every day and got 70 peaks in 30 days. I started with Villager, went over to Rabbit, and then came back to get Mile High, Rosa Point and the other peaks. It took 15.5 hours.
For numerous photos and brief route descriptions see the trip report.
Mile-High to Rosa Point to Pyramid loop from S-22. The use trail was extremely helpful all the way. We lost it for a bit near the Natural Rock Tanks, but a crappy 150' scramble got us back on track. Great rewarding day!
great desert hike
Up Palo Verde Canyon, over Rosa Point and Mile High, then down Rattlesnake Canyon. Good fun. Trip Report.
I really enjoyed this hike up over Pyramid Peak and then on to Rosa. Went back down the standard HPS/DPS route. Great views of the Salton Sea from the summit. Coincidentally arrived at the trailhead at the same time as Mark & Craig and ended up hiking with them.
with Ze and the gang. Up standard DPS route and then down over Pyramid before returning via the miners trail.
