Overview

This trail finds itself crossing Bird Spring Pass and the Pacific Crest Trail simultaneously as it travels east to west across the Scodie Mountains. The Scodie Mountains are nestled at the southernmost portion of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. As you immerse yourself into this backcountry setting, one can't help but get a sense of the struggles and the enjoyment early settlers must have felt. To the east, Black Mountain stands proud in the forefront of the El Paso Mountain range with the Panamint Mountains providing a postcard backdrop. To the west, Kelso Valley, Piute Mountain, and Sherman Peak can be witnessed with glimpses of Isabella Lake in the distance. Overlanders especially enjoy running this trail in either direction to afford them passage across the Scodie Mountains to adjacent attractions at their own pace.
