MOUNT WHITNEY

Petit Futé's opinion on MOUNT WHITNEY

Plate millesim 2022

Every year, thousands of hikers embark on the rise of the highest summit in the United States (i. e. outside Alaska, Hawaii and Overseas Territories), up 4,421 m. Whitney Trail offers a difficult but accessible trail when it is not snowed. Created in 1904, it is one of the most popular to reach the summit in 5 to 10 hours (7 to 8 hours of ascent for a medium hiker). To preserve this natural site, a quota system (limited number of hiking permits) takes effect from May to the end of October. It is therefore recommended that the permit be reserved in advance over this period. A less physical alternative is to walk to the Lone Pine Lake (9 km return, no necessary permits).
