Coyote Flat OVERLAND OP - We Are Going Back Again!

Overland Op to the Coyote Flat area southwest of Bishop, CA

Rendezvous Location at Bishop Community Pool and Park

700 N. Main Street, Bishop, CA   37.368093, -118.392945

Plan to arrive at the rendezvous before 1:00 pm as we will be departing promptly by 1:30 to head up the mountain as a group.

Land Ops is going on a 5 day overland trip to Coyote Flat to explore the rich beauty and history of Coyote Flat southwest of Bishop, CA.  Coyote Flat is a beautiful alpine plateau at an average altitude of 10,000 feet, to escape the heat of the nearby Bishop area.  Several small lakes are hikeable or driveable for fishing or camping. 

  • We will take five days to complete this trip.  Coyote Flat is primitive camping, so you will need to pack food and gear accordingly. 4x4 WITH LOW RANGE IS REQUIRED!
  • Wednesday, July 24th is a travel day to Bishop and then on to Coyote Flat to set up camp.  From the Rendezvous, it is about a two hour drive to the camp area.  The exact location will be updated soon.
  • Thursday we will begin exploration of this area, rich in mining history.  We might take a drive up above Green Lake, to an area approximately 11,500 feet.
  • Friday will be another day to explore, or for the fishermen, to either hike to Baker Lake to fish or drive to Funnel Lake to fish.
  • Saturday will be another day of exploration.
  • Sunday will be travel day to drive down the mountain and home.
Bishop is approximately 5 hours driving time from South Orange County so plan accordingly.  Temperatures drop at night at 10,000 feet, so bring appropriate gear.  There is always a chance of summer showers in the Eastern Sierras.  Here is a link to a preview video of the trail route Coyote Flat Trail Route Preview

We hope to make HF radio contact on this trip, and will probably make contact with the Bishop Radio Club as well on their repeater.  The Comm Plan will be published prior to the trip, as well as coordinates for Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Camp Sites.
