Sombrero Peak—East Approach Trail

Sombrero Peak—East Approach Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Cone-shaped Sombrero Peak rises head and shoulders above the east rim of the McCain Valley plateau, overlooking a 100-square-mile expanse of rock-strewn mountains and gorges, sun-baked valleys, and distant badlands. Conversely, the peak itself is a prominent and familiar landmark widely observed from the desert below. The short, steep approach from the east described here feels a bit like true mountain climbing. A longer, west-side approach with less climbing is described in the West Approach."
