Split Mountain


Split Mountain is located in Kern County, about 3 miles northwest of Wofford Heights, 175 miles from Los Angeles. It lies within the Sequoia National Forest. Split Mountain was added to the HPS Peak List in 1970. See the Summit Signature for more history and some background about the name of the peak.

Peak Guides
HPS has two current documented routes to the peak. Route 1 is 8 miles round trip with a total of 2400' of gain (1500' to the peak, 900' on the way back), following an old logging road to the ridge between Black Mountain #5 and Split, then up and down along the ridge to the summit. Route 2 is 3.5 miles one way and 1500' gain from Black Mountain #5.

Older Peak Guides (routes may no longer be legal or safe, use caution!): 1975, 1993 and Microsoft Word version from 2002.
