Somewhat easy trail with a couple of semi-technical areas. Only saw two other groups. Great views and wildflowers.

Beautiful views. We could see the smoke in the valley.

A dull hike with spectacular vistas on both side of the ridge...the trail is above tree line and in the sun.

Deadman's Pass is a really fun jump off point to the San Juan trail up to the Two Teats & San Juan Mountain, putting you up over 10.000ft. Great for a challenging trail run or Mnt bike run. Awesome off trail options either dropping off trail East towards June Lake & rt 395 or West towards the PCT & the Minarets. It's actually in Mammoth Lakes CA not Oakhurst CA, enjoy
