Gods Pocket Peak Trail to Camp Creek Professional Review and Guide
"Solitude is a staple of Jarbidge Wilderness, but even horse packers seem to shy away from the Gods Pocket Peak Trail, even though some of the most picturesque scenery in the area is found along this path. From the very beginning, spectacular vistas reign as the chief attributes of the journey, and each step offers more stunning glimpses of the surrounding ranges and canyons. Midway through the trip, a 3-mile traverse on narrow trail clinging to precipitous slopes (perhaps the reason horse packers avoid the trail) offers nearly continuous panoramas of the vast Nevada landscape.
Campsites are few, but so is the demand, and some of them offer excellent aeries from which to take in the views and awake to a spectacular sunrise, although water may be scarce in late season. The one glaring drawback to the trip is the damage that cattle and sheep have done to the area around Hummingbird Spring. Hooves have totally ravaged the lush meadow surrounding the spring, and one can only imagine how polluted the water may be from the urine and feces of that much stock."
