Burro Mountain on Western Edge of Smoke Creek Desert.
Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness Board Member Larry Dwyer and climb to the top of this desert peak with expansive views of Smoke Creek Desert. Explore area being considered for Wilderness designation. This is sage grouse habitat; we could see pronghorn, deer, and raptors or, possibly stumble across archeological remains. Learn about sage grouse habitat and how wilderness designation may help these majestic birds. No dogs, please. Leader: Larry Dwyer (775-745-6628; [email protected]). Moderately Strenuous.
