Norman Clyde described Milestone Mountain as “a pyramid surmounted by a slender flat-topped spire several hundred feet in height. Apparently inaccessible on all sides, it is actually so on three of them, but the western side—despite its formidable wall-like appearance—can be scaled with comparative ease. It is regarded as one of the finest viewpoints in the Sierra.” The slender summit pinnacle of this appropriately named mountain is a landmark feature on the Great Western Divide.
