DAY HIKE: White Mountain Peak (LVMC 50)

  • Sep 7, 2013 · 6:00 AM

Total Distance: 14 miles round trip
Total Elevation Gain: 3,500'
Altitude: 11,700' - 14,246'
Terrain Description: Class 1, dirt road
Approximate Hiking Time: 6-8 hours

White Mountain is a California 14er, but is relatively easy. The hike follows a road all the way to the summit. While this hike is straight-forward, the altitude affects people differently, especially if you have not been to this elevation before. We will car camp Friday night either at Grandview campground at 8500' or at the trailhead at 11,700', then do the hike Saturday morning. The drive to the trailhead is a long drive on a rocky road. We will drive home Saturday night after the hike.

** High-clearance vehicle is recommended to get to the trailhead **

White Mountain Peak is one of LVMC's Classic 50 Peaks and it is also on the Sierra Clubs DPS list.

      Yes, please let us know what time on Friday you can leave. I am still waiting to hear from most of the other RSVPs to confirm whether they are going. I will send a final email tomorrow (Wednesday) with carpool location etc. to those who have confirmed. Kristi are you still itching to drive your 4Runner?

      September 3, 2013

    I wanted to let everybody know that I injured my hip when I did Langley earlier in the month. I have not been able to hike since. It is a lot better, but not 100%. I will try and test it this weekend, but I am not going to force it. If I am unable to test, I will be unable to attend this hike. I will follow up again by Saturday night.

      So sorry to hear that, Brett. Heal fast, man. Injuries are so discouraging. I would take it over, but I'm not eligible right now -- my first aid and CPR are expired.

      August 31, 2013

    • Brett S.

      I have pulled out. People can still go as a non-lvmc hike
