Peak 9165

Elevation: 9,165 ft
Prominence: 745

This peak is not the book.


Peak 9165 is the 3rd-highest summit in the Trinity Mountains Subrange. The peak can be climbed from almost any direction but, based on access considerations, I suggest the route which leaves the road that leads to the Trinity Mountain fire lookout at the 9,200-foot contour. From this point, you can traverse the ridge to the summit and climb Peak 9140 in the process. Stay close to the ridge top and avoid obstacles by traversing the West Side of the ridge when necessary to reach the summit of Peak 9140.

From Peak 9140, descend and side hill past the next intervening high point to reach the saddle on the peak’s North Side. Climb the North Ridge from this point. This route is roughly 10.0 miles round-trip with 3,300 feet of elevation gain when leaving from the gate closing the Trinity Mountain Lookout Road. Add another 250 feet of elevation to climb to the top of Trinity Mountain (you cannot pass it up when you are so close) and you will find this to be a strenuous outing. USGS Trinity Mountain
