Overview

Little Virgin Peak (3,514 ft) is a nice little peak that stands in the morning shadow of "big" Virgin Peak. For residents of Mesquite, this peak makes a nice morning hike, but for others, it is too short and inconsequential for a destination hike. In that case, however, it makes a nice add-on hike for visitors to Gold Butte National Monument.

Presented here are photos taken from the summit. For a full description of the hike including GPS coordinates, see Little Virgin Peak. See also photos of the descent.
