Potato Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.035m (9,957ft) above the sea level, located in Mono County, in the east central portion of the U.S. state of California. It’sone of the highest mountain roads of California.
The road to the summit, located within the Bodie Hills, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Views of the Sweetwater mountains are spectacular from Potato Peak. Excellent views to the Sierra Nevada Range to the West and the desert ranges in Nevada to the East.
