"The walk past the Great Sierra Tunnel and onto Bennettville takes you back to the 1880s and Tioga Pass’s brief mining boom. The subalpine setting is spectacular, with wonderful views of Mount Dana, the picturesque Tioga Tarns, and endless summer wildflowers. With such varied treats along the way and not much elevation gain, this is a perfect walk with kids."
