OverviewInyo Mountains overlooking Owens Valley about half way between Independence and Big Pine. You can drive all the way to the top or you can make a short walk up hike out of it from Badger Flat which is more fun.
Rivaling Glacier Point in Yosemite or Dantes View in Death Valley the view west is probably one of the most spectacular drive ups you can get anywhere in California. The High Sierra stretches for 100 miles from Owens Lake to the Glass Mountains. White Mountain Peak hulks to the north.
It's a good place to relax and take in the awesomeness.
Ponder the "timeless" forces at play.
The Mazourka Canyon road is well graded and usually good to go by mid to late spring. For current road conditions contact the Eastern Sierra Interagency Center in Lone Pine at 760-876-6222.
