5.0
#20 of 20 in Trails in Yosemite National Park
If you're an adventurous hiker who loves solitude and scenic vistas, Mono Pass Trail won't disappoint you. Situated at the east end of the park, this trail meanders through the woods before it opens up into a high-altitude meadow affording great views. Don't stop once you reach the pass but keep going down the other side and you'll be treated to a spectacular view of the lakes and the canyon. Note that the last stretch through the woods gets steep, so you might want to take a short break to acclimatize.
