Twenty Lakes Basin Trail
One of the most scenic loops in Mono County, the Twenty Lakes Basin trail kicks off from the west end of Saddlebag Lake, just a few miles off Hwy.120 (on the east side of Tioga Pass) and is part of the Hoover Wilderness area. For a nominal fee, a small boat ferries hikers across Saddlebag Lake to the main trail-head, saving your feet an additional 1.5 miles each way. The undulating loop (about 5 miles) meanders past numerous high alpine lakes, meadows, and stunning granite peaks. Wilderness permits are required for overnight travel.
