My husband and I decided to do Wildrose when we chickened-out on Telescope (It had 1.5 feet of snow and -20 wind chills). We are really glad we did Wildrose instead. It's easy getting to the trailhead. You encounter the typical DV gravel road to get there (passable with sedan). It's not the most scenic hike to get to the summit. It's gradually straight up the entire first half (4.2 miles). There's a great lookout about half way up. Footing is pretty easy and varies between hard packed dirt and occasional large rocks. We ended up wearing every piece of clothing we had close to the top where the temperatures were probably in the 20's (70 that afternoon in Furnace Creek) and the winds were probably 20-30mph towards the summit. There was snow towards the top in February. Once at the top the views were one of the best after our week in the park. The 8.5 mile hike took us a little under 4 hours. This hike and Eureka sand dunes were our favorite from the week long trip.

Most hikers who have peak-bagging on the mind opt for the big one (ie. Telescope Peak), but the Wildrose Peak trail is almost as good. The starting elevation is 6,800 ft, so you can even do it in summer. Be sure to check conditions in winter, there may even be snow here. It's actually pretty moderate until about the last mile, which is steep - 2,200 ft gain in total, and around 8.4 miles (not 8.2 that the other review says - also, not sure why they recommend starting in the early afternoon; in the summer the afternoon has greater chances of clouds rolling in or even thunderstorms). Starting early is generally better for any hike.

Trailhead starts next to Charcoal Kilns and parking lot. A meandering gravel path leads to the summit with switchbacks when the trail gets steep. It's not a hard hike for any experienced hiker, although you might feel the altitude if you're not used to it. We're from sea level and we felt little spaced out at times. Great views along the way.

Kilns were cool, but I wouldn't recommend going inside, as everything I've read says that rattlesnakes like cool and dark!!! The hike up Wildrose Peak trail was absolutely beautiful. Trail starts easy, then progressively gets more and more challenging. Nothing too difficult, but you'll know you've done a good 4 mile hike by the time you're done! The views at the top are magnificent.

The Wildrose Peak Trail offers an 8.2 round-trip hike. The trail is in great shape with apparent maintenance. The climb involves about 2000 feet and the altitude factor would place this hike in the moderate rather than easy range. If 8 miles is more tone wants to attempt follow the trail to the saddle. This provides a great 5 miles round-trip hike with amazing views of the Salt Flats and Badwater Basin below. The views along the trail are lovely taking you through a juniper/pinyon pine forest. This is a great hike that places you in a very different environment than the area around Furnace Creek or Stovepipe. Be sure to start in the early afternoon. Temps are much cooler than on the other side of the mountain. Sunblock, plenty of water, a snack and hat are all musts.
