Shortcut to Rae Lakes

Postby Trailguru » Wed Sep 11, 2013 12:53 pm

I've read before (don't ask me where) that it is possible to access the Rae lakes area by going over only 1 pass as opposed to 2 (Kearsarge and Glenn). Seems like that there is something called Dragon Pass that takes you to Dragon lake from Onion Valley.

Has anyone ever done this before? If so is it worthwhile to save time?
Also can it be accessed by first summiting Mt Gould and then descending directly to Dragon Lake? Thanks for everyone's feedback

Thanks Maverick

I still cant find information on anyone who climbed Mt Gould and then descended to Gould/Dragon Pass and then on to Dragon lakes area.
