Mount Whitney
23 to 24 June 2003


Into The Mountains
The main trail is 10.7 miles (17.1 km) from the Whitney Portal Ttrailhead to the summit, with over 6,100 feet of elevation gain. The trail is non-technical (meaning a walk-up) and gradual, but is tedious due to the long distance to be hiked, and the high altitude environment. Being the highest peak in the "lower 48" and the trail being non-technical, there is a large number of people aspiring to reach the summit.
