Take HWY 88 to the Hope Valley area just east of Carson Pass and park on the road at about 38.7267°N, 119.9540°W.

Route Description

Stevens Peak will be visible from the road. For the first half of the route you head basically straight up the gully toward the bowl on the south side of the peak staying to the south side of the creek which wanders through a sparsely wooded area. After gaining about 700 feet of elevation things level out. Continue west for just another 150 or 200 yards and cross the creek heading north. In front of you will be a broad open ridge which you follow up to the right, northwest. After another 600 feet of elevation gain the pitch flattens out again and you will see both the summit block and the bowl. From here you continue west into the bowl and either bear slightly right heading just north of what is usually a cornice or bear slightly left to gain the ridge south of the cornice.Either way the summit plateau is just to north.

Essential Gear

Snowshoes or skis.
