View Trail Journal
This is a pretty tough hike, but well worth the effort. It crosses two passes and takes you deep into the wilderness near Mount Whitney.

The trail up Mount Whitney is never easy, but this is particularly the case in winter when it is covered in snow. The advantages include more solitude and no bugs. On the other hand, you have more severe weather, avalanches, and cold temperatures.

We believe that the best way up Mount Whitney is from the West. Of course, this means taking the scenic route and it will take you a couple extra days. However, it also means spending more time in the wilderness, more time to acclimate, and less time spent in the overcrowded Disneyland environment of the main Whitney Trail.
