Wheeler Peak

Spot Comments:

  • This is the second highest peak in Nevada at 13,063 feet. Boundary Peak on the west side of the state in the White Mountain Range is the highest at 13,140 feet. Although it is small, Wheeler Peak does have a glacier in its deep cirque and is the much more dramatic of the two mountains.

  • There is a trail from the car-camp leading to the glacier pictured above.  The summit trail comes up the easy ground from the right.
