Ubehebe Peak Trail

Ubehebe Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A steep out-and-back hike to a remote peak in the southern Last Chance Range with spectacular views of surrounding basin and range country. From the summit, the Saline Valley lies 4,500 feet below to the west. Beyond is the soaring 10,000-foot crest of the Inyo Mountains with the even higher Sierra Nevada looming further to the west. The crown of Death Valley —lofty Telescope Peak —can be seen to the southeast, along with the vast wooded plateau of Hunter Mountain. Perhaps most impressive is the eagle’s-eye view of the gleaming white Racetrack playa encircling the tiny dark specks of the Grandstand far below."

"Ubehebe Peak is one of the few Death Valley peaks largely accessible by trail. The steep out-and-back hike leads to a remote peak in the southern Last Chance Range from which you will enjoy spectacular views of surrounding basin and range country.

Before climbing Ubehebe Peak, a short 1-mile round-trip hike east to the Grandstand is a worthwhile warm-up and also provides a good perspective on your journey to the top of Ubehebe Peak. From the Grandstand a pre-climb visual orientation involves identifying Ubehebe Peak on the left with your route going up the east face of the north peak, then around the back side into the prominent notch, then left up the skyline to the summit."
