Upper Summers Meadow

Ultimate 4wd destination: Upper Summers Meadow

Upper Summers Meadow is a high mountain meadow at an elevation of 3.110m (10,203ft) above the sea level, located in Mono County, in the east central portion of the U.S. state of California. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of California.

Located within the Rocky Mountain National Park, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called Upper Summers Meadow Road. The road is impassable in winters. 4x4 vehicle required. The road will narrow and steepen, and eventually the aspens will close in on both sides and scrape your car. A couple of miles before road end, there is a steep, loose section, and just before road end, the road steepens dramatically, with large exposed rocks and tree roots mixed with loose gravel and soil.
Starting from the paved US-395, north of Willow Springs, the road to the summit is 31.38km (19.5 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 1.081 meters.
