Olancha Pass and Summit Meadow is a 7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Lone Pine, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from April until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
We went in early spring on a weekend and were the only people out on the trail. If you want solitude, this is it!
I definitely recommend taking a GPS with you out on this trail. Ranchers drive cattle through the area, and we had to stop several times to check we were going the right way.
We heard a bear up ahead of us, so turned around before we reached the pass. We'll definitely have to come back. Gorgeous views, lots of waterfalls, and the dog loved it too!
This is an awsome well maintained trail with awsome scenery it is strenous but once you get to Olancha Pass if you want to go further it pretty much levels out.
