The Parker Bench area is situated between the beautiful June Lake loop and the Mono Basin Scenic Area. The rolling sagebrush hills are accentuated by scattered stands of quaking aspen, and framed by the towering backdrop of the high Sierra crest.
Travelers are drawn to the unique landscape of the Mono Basin and the nearby lakes, streams, forests, and peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Recreational opportunities abound, including hiking, camping, fishing, backpacking, skiing, horseback riding, and more. The weather is typically warm and sunny in the summer months, with occasional thundershowers, though snow is a possibility at the higher elevations, even in summer.
