Beautiful peak with great views of the Kelso dunes and surrounding desert environment from the summit. There is a registry to sign at the peak just below the rock cairn (there are two summits within about 75' of each other, the registry is on the more western peak.

Thanks for Gerald Sauer for allowing public access to this beautiful place!

The forty acres on top of Silver Peak are private property. I'm the owner. You’re welcome to visit at your own risk so long as you respect the remote wilderness setting and "leave no trace." That includes no camping, fires or firearms. The steep hike to Silver Peak is quite strenuous and potentially dangerous in hot or cold weather. The extent of the property is shown on the National Geographic map of the Mojave National Preserve.
