Potosi Mountain | Northern Hills Exploration | Spring Mountains, Nevada

During this adventure, though I do not ascend to the summit, I scope out the Northwestern area of Potosi Mountain and discover a few alternate summit approaches. Potosi Mountain, Elevation 8,517ft, is the last high point along the horizon in the Spring Mountains as you’re viewing the skyline from Las Vegas. From Potosi Mountain’s 8,517ft summit, populated with a number of communications towers, you can look across the entire stretch of the Rainbow Mountains. Route details: 16 mi RT from Hwy 160/ 5,500ft > 7,200ft; **Unpaved Road then Wilderness (no trails)** Click image or title above for more…
