Unused Whitney Permits for 2014

Up-to-Date through: November 1, 2014 This table shows the number of permits remaining for both overnight hikes and day hikes on the Main Mount Whitney Trail. (and day hikes on the

non-trail Mountaineers Route.) During the summer hiking season, you can see what is currently available at the online permit website, Recreation.gov.

Check Recreation.gov for remaining permits (A=Avilable, R=all reserved). If someone cancels a permit more than two days before, it will show up as

Available on the start date of the permit returned. Here are the links for the available slots. Click "

Update Availability" to see the 2-week display of available permits:

Mt Whitney Trail Day Use availability Mt Whitney Trail Overnight availabilityIf someone with a reserved permit becomes a no-show (they don't show up and don't phone in before the deadline, which is noon the day before for day hikes, and 10 AM on the entry date for overnight permits), then their permit becomes available to people walking into the Visitor Center and asking. The no-shows become available at 11 AM, (the day before for day hikes, and current day for overnighters).

The Unused columns below show the number of permits left over

after all permit activity has completed for that date. It is the difference between the permit quota and the count of permits issued for the day, and includes the cancelled and no-show permits that were not re-issued to walk-in people.
