Ascent Trip Report

I hiked Seven Troughs after hiking Hannan Range in the morning. From Hannan Range I drove back 2.75 miles to the last fork in the road and took the right fork down into the wash and in a 100 yds took the right fork again. I followed this road 2.0 miles where I turned right on a lesser road and headed east directly at Seven Troughs. In a mile I came onto another road where I turned right and then in another 100 yards turned left again and still a lesser road. These roads would be problematic if they were very wet. I followed this last road another 2.8 miles until it ended.

I hiked through sagebrush up to the west ridge that leads to the summit. This is easy hiking and the route is obvious. There are a couple rocky outcroppins on the ridge that I passed on the right. The summit area was covered with lady bugs. Great views. The summit register was placed in 1995 by Barbara Lilly and Gordon MacLeod. I was the 5th person since then to sign the register.
