“A run through wide-open alpine tundra with spectacular views of the High Sierra.”— Adam Hodges
At about 3.25 miles, you reach a trail juncture. The Parker Pass Trail branches right and the Mono Pass Trail branches left. Continue left up to Mono Pass, which is only a third of a mile further.
Once you reach the top of Mono Pass, drop over the other side just a bit to gain a glimpse of Mono Lake in the valley below. Then turn around and head back to the trail juncture with the Parker Pass Trail.
Turn left onto the Parker Pass Trail. It climbs up a short hillside and then proceeds through a grove of conifers before opening up onto the wide-open alpine tundra. The trail then proceeds at a very gentle grade to Parker Pass, giving you time to admire the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
If you’d like to extend your run, continue over Parker Pass for a bit. Otherwise, turn around at the pass and head back down the way you came to the trailhead along Tioga Road.
