Rogers Peak (elevation of 9,960 feet and prominence of 360 feet) is in the Panamint Mountains and is located in Death Valley National Park.
From the trailhead, you have two choices to get to the summit of Rogers Peak:
1) Walk up a service road to the summit.
2) Hike about 2.25 miles on the Telescope Peak Trail to a saddle below Rogers Peak, which will be on your right, to the north. Rogers Peak is easily recognizable by the communication towers on top of it. There is a use trail that you can take part of the way up; thereafter, take the path of least resistance to the top. There may be a few cacti and plants in your way, but this is a fairly easy class 1 walk-up.
A hike to Rogers Peak is most often done in conjunction with a hike to Telescope Peak. Adding Rogers Peak to the Telescope Peak hike would probably add 1/2 mile and about 300 feet of elevation gain. There would not be much of a reason to go all the way to the trailhead solely to hike Rogers Peak.
