Gandolfo Canyon Exploratory Day Hike/Peak Climb: Gandolfo Canyon LWC (Lands With Wilderness Characteristics) is located in a northern spur of the Shoshone Mountains between Mt Airy Pass (Hwy 50) and Railroad Pass (NV 722). This will be an exploratory trip where we may attempt to summit Dee BM (7988’) and/or Emigrant Peak (7848’). Gandolfo Canyon is a citizen proposed “LWC” unit and hikers will learn how they can help protect this stunning area. We should also experience some outstanding views of the Smith Creek Valley to the west and the Reese River Valley and Toiyabe Mountains just to the east. There will be about 3 hr drive each way and the hike will be 5-10 miles RT with 1500-2500’ of total elevation gain. Please contact leader for further details. No dogs.
