Mt. Whtiney Training Hike 1 out of 7

This will be the easiest in the Mt. Whitney training series. If you want to ask yourself whether Mt.Whitney is for you, probably you should start with this easy hike.

Distance: 4.2 miles (round-trip)
Suggested time: 3 hours
Trail Condition: Very good
Difficulty: Easy-Moderate hike. 

Features:
– 2nd Highest peak in the Front Range of San Gabriel Mountains
– 49 peaks above 5000 feet are visible from here on a clear day
– 360-degree views from summit 
– Old Nike Missile Station

Very interesting story behind its name: 

The summit was given its name in 1875 when surveyors climbed to its peak, lugging some heavy survey equipment. They thought they were climbing to the highest peak in the range, but were “disappointed” when they got to the top and saw taller San Gabriel to the south. It was only 167 feet taller and they had to carry the heavy equipment again. 

Hike Lead: Rohan and Piyush Deokar
