Awesome trail did it yesterday with my gf and our 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk (stock) unfortunately no snow up there at all but still very scenic trail love it!!!

highly recommended 4x4 low range and high clearance vehicles only maybe some lockers would be good if snow!!

This was a really fun trail on our Dualsport motorcycles. I'm not terribly experienced but it was pretty easy, even the water crossings. You can go all the way to The Bristlecone Pine Forest.

The road out of Bishop area is called Silver Canyon you will cross a creek minimum of 4 times depending on time of year with a water depth up to 2 feet, it is steep with lots of switch backs all the way to the top on to Bristleconepine road. At certain points the inclimb is more then 20% High clearance 4×4 only, so no Subaru
Do not attempt this road when you encounter snow, the chance of sliding off the mountain is very high.
