Day 5 in Pioneer Basin
Days 4-5: Day four takes us back across Mono Creek and up canyon to the highlight of our trip, Pioneer Basin. We will spend two days in this vast basin with Mount Stanford and Huntington to our east and Mount Crocker and Hopkins to our north and west. Pioneer Basin is filled with a cascade of glaciated lakes above and below the timberline, affording a wide variety of easy-to-moderate day hikes. For the more adventurous, Hopkins and Crocker peaks provide awesome views. Total mileage is 4.5 miles with an ascent of about 950 feet and a descent of 300 feet.
