"Drove up from Las Vegas at 2am. Started the hike at 645am & followed the trail to the saddle between Rogers & Bennett. From there, we hiked cross-country up the sometimes snow-covered slope to Bennett Peak. After quickly signing the summit register, we continued down the ridge, back to the trail & up to Telescope Peak. Due to the VERY cold temps and the long drive back to Vegas, we did not also do Rogers on the way back, as we had originally planned. I doubt the temps got over 40 today & there was a steady, biting wind the whole time. Yuck!" - Kevin, Nov 16, 2014
"On a solo trip to Telescope Peak, I decided to bag Bennett Peak on my way up. Views were great and I spent the night in a saddle just below Bennett Peak, then bagged Telescope Peak the next morning before returning to my car." - brettmurphy85, Mar 4, 2013
"Left Vegas at 4am & headed to Mahogany Flats. Flew down the trail & stopped at Bennett Peak before reaching Telescope, our main goal of the day. On our way back, a few of us stopped at Rogers Peak, then took a pretty straight-forward cross-country route back to the vehicles. The trail would have been a better idea, but it would have taken longer & we wanted to see something new. After all that, we drove back to Furnace Creek for some Choco Tacos & a beer, then the long drive back to Vegas. Great daytrip!!!" - Kevin, May 19, 2012
