Griffith Peak Re-Route Project

Friends of Nevada Wilderness, the Student Conservation Association interns under the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership, and over 20 volunteers will be working over the next ten days to re-route the trail to the summit of Griffith Peak, the third highest mountain in the Spring Mountains.

Some will be camping out along the trail while others will come up to help for a day or bring up supplies.

A pack string will bring up water for the trail crew.

And they're off! Check back for regular updates on the team's progress!
