Brief Directions

From Hwy. 395 take Tom's Place exit up Rock Creek to Mosquito Flat trailhead, hike in over Mono Pass, about an 8 mile backpacking trip (one way).

Notes

The view looking towards the peaks beyond 4th Recess from Pioneer Basin are amazing. It requires a backpacking trip (or pack horse) to get here, and the mosquitoes can be bad in early summer, but the scenery is the high Sierra at it's best.
