Mono Pass is a mountain pass, just outside Yosemite National Park, near the region of Tuolumne Meadows.

Mono Pass is between Mount Gibbs and Mount Lewis.[1]

Native History[edit]

When only Indians lived in the area, and for a time after, a major trading trail went over Mono Pass and through Bloody Canyon to Mono Lake, just to the east of the Yosemite area.[2][3][4][5][6]

The location of Mono Pass[edit]

Mono Pass is just outside of Yosemite National Park, though the trail starts along the Tioga Road 1.4 miles (2.3 km) east of the entrance, inside the park.[1]
