Turtlehead Peak Hike

6-Pack of Peaks Challenge #1

This is our first of our six summits in the 6-Pack of Peaks Challenge where we will be hiking to the summit of one of the tallest peaks in Southern Nevada each month from May through October.

Join us as we summit Turtlehead Peak, the only Limestone peak in the Red Rock National Conservation Area. Topping out at 6,324 feet, we will be approaching from the east side of Calico Basin as we hike more than 8 miles on this out-and-back trail. This hike is considered a challenging route, taking an average of six hours minimum to complete.
