Boundary Peak rises at the northern end of the White Mountains. Though it is officially the highest peak in Nevada, there are much higher peaks in the White Mountains, all rising across the California border. Among these is White Mountain, the highest peak in the range, and third highest in California. Nevada's second highest peak, Wheeler Peak, is considered by many to be a more spectacular peak, as it dominates its surrounding terrain. The summit of Boundary Peak is attained by an easy hike, and is generally approached from the east, which allows for some solitary climbing in contrast to other peaks in the range that are approached from the California side.
