A rugged hike in the seldom-visited Sierra Estrella Wilderness. Quartz Peak Trail, in the 14,400-acre Sierra Estrella Wilderness, leads visitors from the floor of Rainbow Valley (elevation 1,550 feet) to the summit ridge of the Sierra Estrella at Quartz Peak (elevation 4,052 feet) in just 3 miles. The trail is extremely steep and difficult to follow in places. This is a hike for experienced and well-conditioned hikers only! From the Quartz Peak Trailhead, follow a closed four-wheel-drive track approximately 0.25 mile. Look to the left as you walk up the old road to find a narrow trail ascending the ridge to the north. The trail is poorly marked in places and does not extend to the summit; the final 0.25 mile to Quartz Peak is a scramble over boulder and talus slopes that requires careful footing. Quartz Peak is a point on the spine of the Sierra Estrella capped by an outcrop of white quartz.
