High Sierra Nevada Historical Monument
Lower Summit City Creek

Lower Summit City sign improperly placed in the late 1990s.

This sign was improperly placed at the Horse Canyon trail junction along Summit City Creek during the late 1990s until early in the new century. It is no longer located at Horse Canyon, nor anywhere along Summit City Creek.

Though the location of Lower Summit City was long thought to be deep in the canyon, subsequent scholarship points to its location at the current (2013) location of the Summit City Canyon trail junction in Summit City Canyon below Fourth of July Lake.
