University Peak is a thirteener in the Sierra Nevada. Its name commemorates the University of California. It is on the Sierra crest between Mount Gould to the north, and Mount Bradley to the south. It lies partly in Tulare County and partly in Inyo County. Its west side is protected by Kings Canyon National Park.
The nearest trailhead to University Peak is Onion Valley. The least technical route to its summit is an off-trail hike up the south slopes. It offers a variety of other routes from easy scrambles to rock climbing. The more challenging routes led the Sierra Club's Sierra Peaks Section to list University as a Mountaineers's Peak.
