Telescope Peak

I didn't notice Telescope Peak from Death Valley mentioned in the favorites. For those I've done, I consider it a grand classic, as R2R2R and Cactus to Clouds. 20 miles and 11,000+ ft gain. I have done it 3 times and may do it again this spring. See my article at
Others' accounts (uder telescope) also are at:

I have to agree Ron. That is truly a classic.
I have a website that lists other strenuous one day hikes and I recommend visiting the LINKS like Summitpost etc.
Another good one is White Mtn from the bottom

The best part about Telescope Peak is the airshow that the F-16s put on from the neighboring Air Force bases near Death Valley. If you are lucky, they will start dog fighting while you are on top of the peak.

Here's a great link from my site:


And here's a Nice Death Valley gallery form my trip:

boulder dave, i don't think the area in the far background is owens valley. it maybe the high valley between the argus range and the cosos range that is on the china lake weapons center. i don't think you can see owens valley from telescope peak.

Thanks for reminding me to fix that caption!

It is actually the salt flats you can see from that angle. I appreciate it!

Best,

WOW Ron, at least three times. I can't imagine doing it again.

I tried it from Bad Water on the east side of the valley floor in 84-85 but got mired down in "mud" out on the salt flats trying to get to the lowest point. Aborted the attempt (I was carrying full pack anticipating camping out at Mahogany Flats awaiting pick-up).

I came back a couple of weeks later (I was a seasonal park ranger stationed at Furnace Creek) and parked up in Hanaupah Canyon. About 9am I walked down the road and onto the valley floor. I had fashioned some "mud shoes" out of plywood but they were more trouble than their worth as they wanted to stick to the mud. Reached the lowest point on the vas best as I could triangulate, turned around and retraced my steps back up to the car in Hanaupah. Got a few winks and then set off up Hanaupah with topo in hand for Telescope Peak.

As I recall, I reached the summit around noon Sunday and got back to the car in Hanaupah after dark. 23,000'+ and however many miles and thought I'm never doing that hike again. My boss did ask me to carry a park service radio with me in case of trouble...this in my solo hiking days.
