Boundary Peak is the highest summit in U. S. state of Nevada and is located in Esmeralda County. It is the northernmost peak over 13,000 feet (4,000 m) in the White Mountains. At 13,147 feet (4,007 m) the peak is the highest point within the state of Nevada, although it is only about half a mile (1 km) from the California state line. Montgomery Peak at 13,441 feet (4,097 m) is located just across the state line in California, and by most definitions Boundary Peak is a sub-peak of Montgomery Peak.
Just a mile from the Nevada-California border, this beautiful trek can take you to the summit of Boundary Peak. With an elevation of 13,141' it is the highest peak in Nevada. Hikers are rewarded with views of ancient bristlecone pines and a panoramic pictures of the surrounding valleys and peaks. Note that the trail to the top does not have much water and is unpopulated, so carry plenty of supplies and let others know your schedule (allow 8 to 12 hours for the trip).
