Merced Peak is located close to southern border of Yosemite National Park, near the Ottoway Lakes. The summit can be approached from the Quartz Mountain Trailhead over Chiquito pass or from one of two trailheads on the road to Glacier Point.
In 1871, Influential Scottish-American glaciologist John Muir discovered an active alpine glacier below Merced Peak, which helped his theories gain acceptance.
