Kearsarge Pass Trail

Seven Pines, California

Kearsarge Pass Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The drive up Onion Valley Road is a prelude to the dramatic scenery that awaits you on the hike. The 4 miles of switchbacks along Independence Creek take you past three lakes and overlooks two more on the way to summiting 11,760-foot Kearsarge Pass, which teeters on the boundary between Inyo National Forest and Kings Canyon National Park."
