Long, Saddlerock, and Bishop Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The terrain in the upper reaches of South Fork Bishop Creek drainage is highly popular with a wide range of recreationists, making securing a wilderness permit or a parking place a dubious proposition on summer weekends.

Unless you’re willing to step off the trail, solitude is an elusive commodity. None-the-less, a bounty of picturesque lakes, rugged peaks, rushing streams, vibrant wildflowers, verdant meadows, and groves of pines all lure you to this classic eastern Sierra journey."

"The Bishop Pass Trail is one of the least difficult ways over the Sierra Crest and into the backcountry of Kings Canyon National Park. The terrain south of Bishop Pass is highly popular with recreationists, which makes getting both a wilderness permit and a parking spot difficult on busy summer weekends."
