Kaiser Pass Hiking Map

Kaiser Map / Kaiser Pass / Sierra Kaiser Wilderness

Tom Harrison Maps makes the newest version of this Central Sierrra wilderness map. Kaiser Wilderness has glacier boulders, huge granite – Kaiser Peak, 4×4 routes and big cell phone towers, plus a lotta great views all the way around. Elevations range from 7000′ to 10,320′ above sea level.

Kaiser Pass is a narrow paved road, located in between Huntington Lake and Edison Lake; Only open in the summer months and closed for winter. No long trailers or RVs allowed on this route. Minimal pulls outs, maximum scenery.

Headwaters to the San Joaquin River start way back here in the mid-Sierra mountains. Decent fishing, awesome camping, rock climbing, hot springs and plenty of hidden spaces. Hiking and mountain biking in this region is abundant, as well as in winter, with cross-country skiing and snowmo trails.

Kaiser Wilderness Topo Map

driftwood

snowmoHuntington Lake marks the right hand turn off for KAISER, a steep one lane road, which leads up the mountain and into the backcountry. Extreme heights, granite boulders and radical cliffs w/ no guard rails. 25 mph max kinda road, for dozens of miles. Not a quick or easy day trip kinda place.

One lane bridges, many lakes, trailheads and peaks. NO ROAD connects through to the Eastern Sierra side, so it’s all on foot after Edison or Florence. Two major California Reservoirs on the edge of High Sierra Wilderness.

Snow is deep! Snowmobiling is very popular on this route and in this deep snow region. China Peak (or Sierra Summit) is the local ski resort. Cabins, condos and campgrounds are all available at Huntington Lake.

The Kaiser Road is one of the highest paved mountain roads in all California. Kaiser Pass has the infamous DUSY ERSHIM 4×4 Trail, seocnd only to the RUBICON TRAIL. Great views to the Eastern Sierra and all the way around. Numerous primitive camps and trailheads, adjacent to the Wilderness Area. Some roads may require high clearance. Or 4 wheel drive. Signs get knocked down, so have a good map and know your vehicles limitations.

National Geographic Maps makes a much larger, full color map that covers the whole region, from Shaver Lake @ Highway 168, way out to Dinkey Lakes Wilderness. The map scale is much wider, so it is not considered a trail map, like the Tom Harrison Topo and the USDA maps listed above.
