Taboose Pass Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Taboose Pass Trail is the northern entry in the “three not to see” category, along with its sister trails over Baxter and Sawmill Passes. A low-elevation start, lack of shade, and poorly maintained tread combine to make this a trip for backpackers in great shape who don’t mind heat and poor conditions. However, for those who aren’t vanquished by the grueling climb up to the pass, the sweeping view across a sloping, flower-splashed meadow is one of the more impressive vistas in the High Sierra. In addition, the easy stroll over to Bench Lake with its fine campsites is a very pleasant journey."
