Funnel Lake / Eastern Sierras


On August 11, 2017 SCOTA will be visiting the Eastern Sierras by way of the Coyote Flats trail out of Bishop, California. This is a high elevation destination so bring your cold weather gear JUST in case. I have been in this area during the middle of summer with temps dipping into low 20s at night. 

Depending on the snow level, we will attempt to camp at Funnel Lake, which is at 10,500ft elevation. If the Lake is unreachable, we will have other options such as Baker Creek and other areas along the flats. 

This is a moderately easy trail consisting of some off-camber switchbacks and a small rock garden to navigate through at the end of the trail near Funnel Lake. I have led stock 4x4 vehicles through this trail in the past. 

As always, this is an event for DUES-PAYING club members only. If you are not a dues-paying member you are welcome to join us on a single trip to check out the club. To be eliglble for any future runs, you must be a full dues-paying member.
