Hunter Mountain
Hunter Mountain is located just north of Panamint Valley. There are several peaks in the area that are about 7000 feet in elevation. The area is covered with pinyon pines and there are many springs in the area. A cabin that was built around 1900 (or earlier) is of some historical interest. Also the area was extensively used by local Native Americans. (Click here for area map)
