Description

Somewhat tucked away further east off of Movie Road, The Mare is home to 'Back In The Saddle', a fun 5.8 romp up.

Getting There

From Lone Pine, take Whitney Portal Road west. Turn right onto Movie Road and drive approximately 1 mile, at which point a dirt road will appear on the right. Turn here and drive 0.4 miles, passing a road going left. Take the SECOND left hand trending road, which will immediately run into a fork in the road. Take the LEFT fork and follow the road until you've reached the 0.4 mile mark on your odometer. Park at the intersection and then hike 100 yard to the northeast. 'Back in The Saddle' is on the southern side.
