Scodie Mountain

(UTM 070431)

Scodie Mountain is located in Kern County, about 15 miles east of the town of Weldon, 150 miles from Los Angeles. It is in Sequoia National Forest and Kiavah Wilderness. Scodie 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 three documented routes to the peak. Route 1 is 7 miles round trip with a total of 2300' of gain, almost entirely cross country, after a brief stint on the Pacific Crest Trail. Route 2 is 3.6 miles round trip, 2200' total gain, almost entirely cross-country. Unlike the other routes, this one requires extensive dirt road driving. Route 3 is 9 miles round trip, 2800' gain, with a few miles of hiking on a dirt road, the rest cross-country.
