Check the weather B4 starting your hike because the wind can be strong enough to blow fleas off a dog. You will be hiking out in the open, fully exposed to anything & everything Mother Nature throws at you. Be prepared for strong, gusty, wind, just in case.

My track is a CLOCKWISE Loop with almost 3,000’ of accumulated elevation gain & is almost an 8-mile hike.
SUGGESTION: Consider hiking between Monday-Friday because Peavine is a very popular mountain for 4-Wheel drive vehicles, Quads & Motorcycles on WEEKENDS.
Wear boots/shoes with excellent traction because the steep slopes both up & down are steep & slippery with loose gravel.
Check out my photoset to get an idea of what the road/tracks look like. The road/tracks are steeper than they appear in my photos.

I took the high road, look for the steepest trail, that's the one I took to begin my hike.
It was nasty, gusty, windy from the get-go; Mother Nature relentlessly kept blowing me off my feet & made it clear she didn't want anyone on her mountains today. After absorbing the buffeting for 2 miles, I finally decided to abort; I'll come back another day.
