Join Steve Dudrow and the Friends of Gold Butte as follow-up to our March 22 hike up Whitney Pocket Wash and into what some of us unofficially call “Gold Butte’s Bowl of Fire.” Please note this is not to be confused with Lake Mead’s Bowl of Fire. It consists of beautiful red cliffs. This time we will drive in on a short stub road (Need 4X4 vehicle) off Whitney Pass Road and take a short hike to the south rim of the bowl. We will explore around the rim enjoying Chicklet Rock and some good views into the bowl where we hiked previously.
The hike will be about 3 mile round-trip, and you can call it fairly easy. We will meet at 9:00 am at the junction of Gold Butte Road and Highway 170 and caravan to the trailhead. All of our hikes are free and open to the public.
Please remember to bring plenty of water, lunch/snacks for yourself, and wear weather-appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes. Masks are required when in close proximity of others.
Because parking at the end of the stub road is very limited, we can only support four vehicles total, one being the hike leader. Therefore, we need to limit participants to three groups, be it three single hikers or three family groups that can share the same vehicle. PLEASE, FOR THIS HIKE ONLY, if you are a family group traveling in the same vehicle, register as “1”. Also, if you register and are unable to attend, notify the coordinator(s) in time to let waitlisted people join.
