Mount Whitney. What else can be said? In case you fell asleep in your geography class, it is the highest mountain in the lower 48 states at 14,497′. It is located in California’s Inyo National Forest west of the town of Lone Pine. One of the most popular routes is a 22 mile, 6100′ elevation gain/loss round-trip from Whitney Portal.
