Babbitt Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 8,727ft (2.660m) above the sea level, located in Sierra County, in the U.S. state of California.
The road to the summit, located within the Tahoe National Forest is gravel and rocky. It’s called Babbitt Road. It’s impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. The dirt road to the summit is well maintained and doable for a 2WD vehicle but high clearance vehicle is recommended. At the summit there’s a lookout built in 1937 and is usually staffed during the fire season.
