Point of the Pintas Professional Review and Guide
"An off-trail loop hike around the northern tail of the Sierra Pinta. This is a hike of the open desert, offering vistas of distant ranges across vast, arid basins. Point of the Pintas is the last major outcrop of granite at the northern tail of the Sierra Pinta.
To begin the trek, hike southeast along the base of Point of the Pintas. After 1.6 miles of easy travel across creosote flats, you will reach a low gap in the granite. Pass through and continue southeast across the open desert at the base of the range. The distant peaks of the Mohawk and Bryan mountains now range across the eastern horizon."
