Has anybody done Bishop Pass or Treasure Lakes recently? I'm worried about the air quality. Does anybody know how it is up there?

Rated as easy? I could see the hike to the lower lakes easy(maybe), but continuing up as the alltrails route indicates is certainly not easy. The trail starts off well maintained and heavily trafficked. There were plenty of mosquitos on the way up. The two lower lakes is I think what the trail is meant to end at, at around 2.5 miles in. Beautiful spot and plenty of areas for a picnic. The alltrails route continues up to the upper lakes after crossing over a small stream at the lower lakes. The crossing is currently only one unstable log. Thereafter the trail is defined at first but then is completely lost shortly after. We made it up to one of the upper lakes but got tired of trail blazing. There was a few snow patches up to the upper lakes. It's beautiful for sure, but if I did it again I would call it at the lower lakes.

So beautiful! Backpacked in early Saturday morning, beautiful weather! The hike in is a little steep but the way out is a breeze! The scenery the entire hike is amazing. The creeks are roaring right now! The lake was freezing but you know you have to dive in anyways!! Caught a fish or 2 and had an awesome time! Can't wait to come back and explore the upper lake! Be sure to pack that bug spray!!

This is a great in and out hike with scenic views, lakes, waterfalls and wildlife. The Treasure Lakes trail splits out from the Bishop Pass Trail not far from the parking lot and trailhead near the Lake Mary dam.

We started at South Lake and hiked up to Long lake and then on to Ruwau Lake. It was absolutely gorgeous! We met a few PCT-ers coming down to Bishop for the night. The area around all the lakes was a bit buggy so I would recommend bug spray. The climb from Long lake to Ruwau Lake is pretty steep but worth the views. The out and back was just under 7 miles. Parking at the trail head was easy- lots of space and no permit needed.
