Let's escape from the city and head out into nature for the weekend! While many California parks can be full of visitors, Desolation Wilderness truly lives up to its name, giving visitors the freeing feeling of being out in the wild.
We are camping in the Glen Alpine region which offers easy access to 9 day hikes to various lakes and peaks between 2 and 7 miles. The PCT even runs through here! We will be hiking quite a bit on this trip to see the excellent views and outstanding lakes in the area. Bring your swimsuits!
Friday: Arrive at Glen Alpine Trailhead and hike to our permitted area (about 3 hours). Set up camp and secure belongings. Have dinner at campsite. Hike to a nearby lake to enjoy the sunset. Hike back to camp under starlight. Enjoy the peaceful evening with stargazing and conversations.
Saturday: Breakfast at camp and either secure belongings or pack up to spend our second night at a new campsite. Hike to Aloha Lake for photos and lunch. Hike to other lakes/peaks/passes. Set up/Return to camp, have dinner, rest and relax with our camp mates. Night hike optional.
Sunday: Breakfast at camp and pack up. Hike back to Glen Alpine Trailhead. Optional lunch on the way back home.
