Trail Overview

Independence Pass takes you from the bottom of the Boulder River Valley up through a very wooded trail with occasional glimpses of the surrounding mountains up to Blue Lake at the summit. Camping towards the top is abundant with many great places to pull off and make camp. Be aware of the dense bear population in the area however, and there will be no shortage of bugs once you clear the tree line.


The trail consists largely of loose 6" or smaller rocks, and for the most part can be completed in 2WD. There are half a dozen spots though that do require some careful tire placement in order to make it up. All of the water crossings are less than 12" deep with a very solid bottom
