Silver Canyon – White Mountains (w/gpx)

Silver Canyon Trail is a very steep but well graded trail that descends rapidly about 6,500 f. from about 11,000 ft to about 4,500 ft the the community of Laws adjacent to Bishop CA.  In the downhill direction you get a great view of the Bishop area and the Sierras on the west side of the valley.  It is particularly spectacular in the mid-morning when the sun is lighting up the Sierras .  We sometimes see Big Horn Sheep climbing on the steep sides of the canyon.
