It Needs to Grow, Just a Bit!
by imike

It comes really close to that nice 10,000' mark... but, not quite.

This short ridge climbing trail takes off from the Crest Trail (#25), close to the far north end of that trail's end. For all practical purposes, the trail could be considered to start from Forest Road 108, just a quarter mile further along the Crest route. If you are trying for an easier day, that is likely where you parked.


Nogal Peak, though not hitting the 10K height, stands well above the surrounding ridges, and offers up a great destination, ideally combined with a series of the nearby trails climbing up and away from Bonito Creek down in the 7,000' levels. Hike up Skull Canyon Trail (#41), Argentina Canyon Trail (#39), Turkey Canyon Trail (#40) or Big Bonita Canyon Trail (#36) and loop down Forest Road 108 (Tanbark Canyon)... or, mix and match the loops... the options are plenty.

Or, keep it simple... park at the Trailhead for the Crest Trail and enjoy an easier trek to the top. Add a rock to the large cairn up on the peak. Kick back and enjoy the views.

This one is a must do for those hiking the White Mountain Wilderness Area!
