Coming soon

Whitney Portal is the official start of the Mount Whitney trails. The portal is located at the end of an 8 mile road at the base of the mountain and at an elevation of about 8,000 feet. It is a hub of activity, excitement and anticipation as hikers are beginning and ending their Sierra journeys at the portal.

My tips from the Mount Whitney hike are located on my Lone Pine page. Here you will find information about the portal itself.
