The Bishop Pass Trail, as it is named, will lead up over Bishop Pass and down to the LeConte Canyon where you will officially join the JMT. The trail itself is in excellent condition. It is well maintained and frequently traveled by back packers and Pack Stock. Day hikers typically remain north of Bishop Pass.

Gorgeous trail. We went from South Lake to Bishop Pass (11,972) and slightly up the trail to hit 12,072 elevation. It was 9.7 miles, 6:35 hours. Amazing!
