DescriptionStriking granite peak surrounded with stunning scenery. Has three known routes that go up it, even though the complete history of the climbing on the formation is a mystery.
Getting ThereThe shortest drive to an alpine peak on the East side from the Bay Area. Not much elevation gain on the six mile approach.
Turn south on Little Walker Road from Hwy 395, south east of the junction with Hwy 108 (Sonora Junction), about 5 miles south along Little Walker, then Little Walker River Road to the Burt Canyon Trailhead.
Permits are available at the Bridgeport Visitor Center or by mail from March 1 through three weeks prior to the first day of you trip - trailhead is Burt Canyon.
