Table Mountain Traverse

Table Mountain Traverse Professional Review and Guide

"The Table Mountain Wilderness is named for the sloping, roughly rectangular, 12-square-mile plateau along the northern crest of the Monitor Range, home to some of Nevada's largest stands of aspen and to some of the state's most expansive vistas. A thriving population of wildlife and a fine assortment of wildflowers add to the beauty this area has to offer backpackers and other recreationists.

Mid-June to mid-July is an excellent time to visit, just when the flowers are at their peak and plenty of water is running in the streams; late September to early October is a grand time to see the aspens at the height of their glory, audibly complemented by the bugling of male elk. The Barley Creek Trail starts off as a mellow 3.5-mile stroll up the canyon of Barley Creek before steeper terrain must be negotiated on the way up to Table Mountain."
