Mount Umunhum | Six-Pack of Peaks

About the challenge

What is the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Depending on your location or where you want to take this challenge (of course, you can take them all if you have the time!), you sign up for Southern California, Northern California, Central Oregon, New England or Colorado Rockies. Newly, there’s a winter challenge for Arizona. I write more about the Six-Pack of Peaks challenge in my first log from Mission Peak.

My log

Completed December 22, 2018

The night before, I could not for dear world sleep, so I ended up getting up way before the sun came up and driving south towards Mount Umunhum. This peak was a sacred place for generations and generations of Native Americans, its name meaning “resting place of the humming bird”, long before it was turned into Air Force radar station. Since Fall of 2017, it’s been open to the public.

I don’t have as detailed description for this peak as for Mission Peak or Mount Diablo, but I do have a video from there to share with you!

Trailhead: Baldy Mountain parking area

Trail: Mount Umunhum Trail

Total: 8 miles


The previous Six-Pack-of-Peaks-Challenge article is HERE.

The next one will be HERE as soon as I get to the top of the next peak (and write it down and publish).

You can connect with me on Facebook,  Instagram, and Twitter.

And have a day full of breathtaking views! 🙂
