The Narrows - Papoose Flat Professional Review and Guide

"You will wind through a narrow canyon on a single-lane road that passes an even narrower, high-walled cleft, The Narrows. Papoose Flat is a high expanse marked by countless large granite outcrops (including one with an arch). It provides a fantastic view across the Owens Valley to the Sierra."

"This beautiful loop includes an especially appealing mix of very narrow, high-walled canyons leading to a particularly tight gap called The Narrows (you won’t drive through them). It continues to broad Papoose Flat, a lofty (about 8,400’) expanse that has been a food-gathering place for American Indians for thousands of years. It is marked by numerous massive granite outcrops (including one with an arch) that are reminiscent of the Owens Valley’s famous Alabama Hills, with views across the 10,000-foot-deep valley to the Sierra."
