8.6 miles to summit on south loop, 10+ miles to summit on north loop. south loop begins very steep. the first two miles are especially hard. The first half of the south loop is in wooded area with shade. Mostly hot temp. There's one campsite on the trail that is pretty well maintained. above treeline, the temp. soars. There is an open meadow to cross and then nothing but rock and dirt all the
way to summit. There is plane wreckage close to summit and a log book on top. From the summit, 4 states can be seen; NV, CA, UT, and AZ. This is also a great view point overlooking Las Vegas. The 5th tallest peak in NV.
