Sunday Peak is located in Kern County, about 9 miles west of
Kernville, 185 miles from Los Angeles. It lies within the Giant
Sequoia National Monument.
In January 1964, Sunday Peak was added to the Sierra Peaks List. Two months
later it was removed.
Sunday Peak was added to the HPS Peak List
in 1970. We've kept it. See the Summit Signature for
more history and some background about the name of the peak.
HPS has two current documented routes to the peak. Route 1 is 3½ miles round
trip and climbs 1000' on a pleasant forested trail to reach the summit. Route 2
follows an (abandoned?) motorcycle track steeply up the ridge from
nearby Bohna Peak, 2¼ miles one way with
2000' of gain.
