Onion Valley/Kearsarge Pass

Postby bravefanla » Tue Oct 01, 2013 11:48 am

Hi All,
Does anyone have any info on the road to Onion Valley parking lot and the trail to Kearsarge Pass? I want to get in one more trip before the snow, lots of it hopefully, closes things down for the year.

Maverick,
Thanks for the reply. I'd call the Ranger Station in Lone Pine but due to the government shutdown I'm sure they're not open.
