This area is just spectacular! Great views! Nice big boulders and rocks. The area goes from desert terrain to mountain terrain fast. We saw deer. Hiked among sage bushes and pine trees. Great area to just enjoy nature!
If you want to experience color change in the Easter Sierra's then this is the drive for you. A beautiful landscape of orange, red and green will accompany your drive. The canyon along Bishop Creek goes up to 6000 feet. The drive is 20 minutes outside Bishop. Lake Sabrina, South Lake, North Lake, and Intake I I surround this area....
I love visiting the area,particularly to take photos. The visitors I've taken there have greatly enjoyed the spectacle scenery. I'm not sure why a previous reviewer mentions all "the trash people leave. It didn't strike me as dirty or unpleasant. Not much else to see but gigantic boulders though!
You can take this loop for many reasons- hiking, bouldering, camping or exploring. There are many areas to camp and if you head into the back country the scenery is beautiful. I would recommend Fall as the summer does get really hot. There are some great back country camp sites if you have 4x4 that can take you there.
