hi mark, summit city is in the mokelumne wilderness area in alpine county,ca. the trail head is around upper blue lake,its about a two mile hike down hill to the townsite.it was a silver mining town of the 1860s.theres a good book on summit city they sell at the alpine county museum in markleeville.if i was going there i would go pretty quick because winter conditions are coming fast this year.i was camping at the ghost town of ellsworth,nevada in nye county last weekend and when i got up sunday morning it was snowing and ellsworth is 6990 feet in elevation,summit city is much higher.
