Silver Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.311m (10,862ft) above the sea level, located in Inyo County, California, United States. It’s one of the highest roads of California.
Located in the White Mountains, this infamous gravel road to the summit is rough with several hairpin turns. A very steep maintained (jeep) trail goes almost directly over the top of the peak. Make sure you get your vehicle and yourself well-prepared before driving this road. 4wd vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. The route is snow free from June to October. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging. Watch out for sudden loose-gravel breaks. Proper preparation is essential to having a safe, enjoyable trip on this road. Always be prepared for winter weather, even in summer. At the summit is a communication tower.
