Weldon Peak


Weldon Peak is located in Kern County, about 21 miles southest of Lake Isabella, 200 miles from Los Angeles. It is located on BLM land near Sequoia National Forest. Weldon Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1993.

HPS has one documented route to the peak. Route 1 is 7 miles round trip with a total of 1600' of gain. About half the hike is on the Pacific Crest Trail (to the base of the peak), with the remainder cross-country for the ascent.
