Added by Kristine Lyng

The highest peak in Nevada, Boundary Peak tops out at 13,146 feet in elevation.

There are two recommended routes to begin the hike, the more popular being the "Queens Mine" route. After driving on an old miner's road (recommend a high clearance vehicle), you reach a saddle where the hike begins and you are greeted with a wilderness register. The hike begins with an uphill walk until you reach a trail just below an adjoining ridge line. For about two miles, the trail meanders--the easiest section of the hike. About halfway through this first 2-mi. section, you will be able to see Boundary Peak in the distance. The next 2-miles of the trail are the most difficult. You are first greeted with a steep mile of uphill scree until you reach the saddle. The last mile includes more scree and some larger boulders. On the top of Boundary Peak, you are just one mile away from Montgomery Peak in California, which is actually higher in elevation than Boundary Peak.
