The Clark Range and Red Peak Pass Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The distinctive, finlike shape of Mount Clark dominates southern Yosemite and is recognizable from high points all over the park. This multiday backpack circumnavigates the mountain, crossing the Clark Range at Red Peak Pass. The scenery is unrivaled in beauty and variety, a treat for the eye and the mind--colorful metamorphic rocks, dozens of lakes and waterfalls, broad vistas of neighboring ranges, and wildflowers galore. It's also less crowded, at least after the first day of hiking, than most other parts of Yosemite. The route described here begins and ends at Happy Isles in Yosemite Valley, but you can begin and end at any one of several points, including Glacier Point and Mono Meadow. If wilderness permits are not available for one trailhead, you can try another."
