The diverse wild lands of the Granite Mountain Wilderness offer excellent opportunities for day hiking, backpacking and horseback riding. A climb up the nearly 9000 foot Granite Mountain or Horse Peak yields one of the most amazing views in the whole Eastern Sierra: a complete 360 degree vista encompassing the Sierran scarp, the volcanic Mono Craters and Glass Mountain, the rugged White Mountains, Adobe Valley, the Excelsior Range in Nevada, the Bodie Hills, and Mono Lake.
Access the trailhead from Hwy 120. Trail begins where the dirt road ends. Trailhead begins at the wilderness border.
