Route Description

I have arbitrarily chosen to start the hike at the beginning of the switchbacks north of Webster Pass (11400 ft). My vehicle’s odometer showed 3.6 miles from Montezuma to here.

Hike the road 1.4 miles (per my GPS) to the 12096 ft Webster Pass. At the pass you will see the very steep road on the left with a sign that says “one way do not enter” (for vehicles). Hike up this steep section to the top of Point 12399 ft and follow the road to the base of the summit where the road goes straight up the slopes to the summit. Total hiking distance from the beginning of the switchbacks is 2.25 miles.

Essential Gear

In summer, only good hiking boots. 4WD vehicle needed to reach trailhead and to cross the stream (see main page).
