950 ft elevation gain, approximate hiking time 5 hours. 8.5 miles in and out. 

Thunder Mountain is the highest point in Amador County, California. It is located in the Sierra Nevada mountains just above the Kirkwood ski area. As a high point, it certainly does not stand out, mostly because it shares a plateau with several mountains in neighboring Alpine County that are higher. 

Regardless, Thunder Mountain is a popular destination for hikers all over the region. Access is easy, with the primary trailhead right off of Highway 88. The primary trail to the summit is short (3.6 miles one way with 1600 feet of elevation gain) and relatively simple to follow. Views from the summit are spectacular.
