Bird Spring Range Highpoint & Bird Peak

After taking the rough and bumpy road up and over Cottonwood Pass, I parked near the base of the mountain and hiked up the old road toward the top. Soon reaching the summit of Bird Spring Range Highpoint, I found that the views were surprisingly terrific.

Dropping down, I made the quick traverse over to Bird Peak, arriving 25 minutes after I'd left the vehicle. I signed the register and headed down.

Rather than retrace my steps, I dropped down into a brushy drainage that led from just below Bird Peak's summit directly to my vehicle. I arrived 58 minutes after starting out.
