Boundary Peak Climbing Notes

    I climbed Boundary Peak on May 18, 2014. The forecast from Mountain-Forecast was spot on: the night prior when I arrived there were clouds, the day of the hike the weather was clear and the winds were just as forecast.

    Very little parking at the Trail Canyon TH, but my vehicle was the only one there so I guess just enough parking. The access road is pretty straight forward and takes about an hour to drive.

    The trail is obvious, but the scree is more like sand in a lot of places making the steep section quite strenuous. No climbing at all, pretty much a walk up mountain.

    Once at the top one is rewarded with beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada range to the west. I was surprised at how few people signed the register since this is a state high point. From my view this is a remote hike and one for lots of solitude.
