Day 6 Pioneer Basin to Third Recess Lake
Day 6: Refreshed after our layover day, we'll make our way out of Pioneer Basin, once again cross Mono Creek to the south and then climb into the Third Recess. This classic alpine lake is forested on three sides and is ideal for swimming. In the past, the Third Recess Lake has provided some great fishing for those so inclined. Total mileage is six miles with an ascent of about 1,020 feet and a descent of 1,350 feet.
