Gabbot Pass

Follow three adventurers as they backpack up Mono Creek to Second Recess. The trail comes to an end so its all cross-country up to Lower Mills Lake, arguably one of the most beautiful lakes in California. The fishing is great, the sunsets are deep orange, and there is no one else in sight. After a memorable two day layover, our crew heads up to 12,200 ft. and over Gabbot Pass. They camp just below Lake Italy, endure 2 days of thunderstorms, then climb to the top of 13,361 ft. Mt. Hilgard. The Hilgard Canyon Trail back down to the John Muir Trail is unmaintained but the scenery is stunning.

Approximate running time: 37 minutes
