Hiking Parker and Mono Pass in Yosemite National Park

This year I chose to explore one the furthest east trail experiences and to discover more about the region where Ansel Adams wilderness and Yosemite meet high in the Sierra. My goal for the day was to climb to both Mono Pass and Parker Pass with brief excursions into Ansel Adams Wilderness to see a set of lakes close to the boarder of both. Along the trail you are given options at 1.8 miles to split up to Mono Pass or veer up to Spillway lake which lays below Parker Pass to the West. Now the trail was only .3 miles back down the trail to head up to Parker Pass, but this seemed like a good place for a little off trail experience

Hiker Alert: South Lake Road Reconstruction Implementing No Overnight Parking – Inyo National Forest

Stating on July 6, and anticipating effective through July 25, the South Lake Road Reconstruction Project will implement no overnight parking in the South Lake area. Hikers need to plan for travel delays, re-routed trailhead access, understand that that long-term parking is not available, plan to be picked up or dropped off at the trailhead, consider shuttles to/from trailheads, and utilize alternative trails for resupply, if possible. It is approximately a three-mile walk to the Bishop Pass Trailhead  via the trail behind Willow Campground that continues near Parchers Resort and connects to the trailhead on the east side of South Lake Road. As a reminder, the project’s scope stated that Bishop Pass Trailhead Parking and Tyee Lakes Trailhead Parking and certain campgrounds will be closed at times this summer, although access to the trailheads will be maintained
