Go past all of the towers for the most amazing views! They are well worth the pain! Make sure your brakes don’t overheat on the way down!

I’ve climbed Mt Fuji and this was way harder. Up up and more up. But, it was a blast. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Bring plenty of water.

A very interesting experience on a sunny mid-January day. The geology and desert vegetation were intriguing. The final section to the top of Telegraph Hill was very steep and challenging but the views from the top were outstanding. This hike is a photographer's delight.

The hike up Telegraph Pass is steep, but fulfilling. The scenery from the top is wonderful. While most people stop at the top, one can walk along the ridge. In order to prepare to hike the Grand Cyn (6 times) I would start the season...More

Once you get out to the area you would have to cross a deep wash. We did see cars parked over there but I would not take my car through that area.
