Brief Directions

From the Bishop Pass trailhead, hike over the Sierra Crest at Bishop Pass directly into Dusy Basin.

Notes

Both Upper and Lower Dusy Basin are above treeline and have numerous lakes to camp near. The hike is a steady grade through forest and into granite basins, with a strenuous switchback section leading to the actual pass. In early summer, you'll encounter fields of shooting stars, columbine, lupine, and indian paintbrush along the reail. It will get cold at night. It hardly gets more beautiful than this.
