Telescope Peak, Death Valley, California

by pmgraehlmd » Wed Oct 23, 2019 1:58 am

I last climbed Telescope Peak on January 2, 1981. I came to a trailhead on the northwest side of the peak which I had approached from the west on a road out of Lone Pine, California. The access that is listed now is only from the east from within the national park. Has the western access been shuttered?

As far as I know, the only trail access is from within the park via Mahogany Flats.

Other routes exist; many require 4wd.
