A day hike or backpack in the Great Basin region of the House Range with spectacular views of the Great Basin in Utah and Nevada. The area also features a small population of bristlecone pine. At 9,669 feet, Swasey Peak is the highest point in the House Range.

In addition, Wheeler and Pilot Peaks and Mount Moriah are visible in Nevada.
