19th Annual Silver Peak or Bust Hike Fundraiser
The 19th Annual Silver Peak or Bust Hike Fundraiser will take place on Sat. Oct. 26th, 2019. Sign in is between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. at the corner of Highway 264 and Eagle Road, 3 miles South of the Esmeralda Market, Dyer (Fish Lake Valley), NV 89010. The remnant of a full moon will light the way up the mountain as participants trek the 10.7 miles to the top of McAfee Pass with only 23 more miles to go to the "Old School" saloon in the historic mining town of Silver Peak, NV. There are no services as you hike the approximate 34 miles through the Silver Peak Mountain range wilderness. The trail is marked with flour arrows and "X" for water and gate raid drops. Those who volunteer on their own to meet and do this are "on their own" and should be fit to finish this one-day hike. Volunteers may provide a safety net to pick up any of the participants that "hit the wall." You may park your car at the Esmeralda Market or at the start and after the hike volunteers may offer you a ride for the 60 miles by highway back to the start to retrieve your car. Any questions contact Bill Kirby at (323) 727-6959 or by e-mail.
