PCT hikes

If you must hike only ONE SECTION of the PCT, then this one stretch, LE CONTE to LAKE TAHOE, is by far the best for high altitude, granite, peaks, passes, total alpine lake bliss, with incredible mountain scenery. When you must limit your big adventure trek, due to time constraints, this portion is some of the most beautiful high elevation terrain in the whole darn nation. Seriously. Better than a movie!

Services like grocery, laundromats, hotels, restaurants, post office, available in SLT (South Lake Tahoe). Postal, food & lodging can be had in numerous locations along certain high country routes – like Vermillion Resort @ Lake Edison. The PCT guide books give good descriptions of these handy trailheads with services, in way more detail.

Yosemite Park Maps

Merced River

Since Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular destinations inside California, several cartographers make overview maps and hiking maps for this busy park. Much of the area is covered in snow half the year and roads are closed annually. So know before you go and call the rangers. Double check campgrounds, road conditions and weather, all prior to trip departure.

Tom Harrison is has an extensive list of trail maps which include the low elevations of Yosemite Valley, as well as the higher elevation backcountry. Waterproof trail maps, topographic w/ camps, canyons, climbs, creeks, lakes, peaks, all terrain.

NatGeo Maps

National Geographic also makes a series of colorful Yosemite maps, which span the whole park from west to east. Waterproof, tear-resistant, folded, two-sided maps.

Wilderness Press makes a couple too!

Central Sierra Nevada Mountains

2-sided, full color, waterproof maps

Yosemite is the most visited National Park in all of California, which is why NatGeo makes 5 maps for this region – so we can all spread out a little.

The main Yosemite Valley is the busy region, so try to avoid it during summer if at all possible. Tuolumne Meadows and Tioga Pass on Hwy 120 is considered the high country and has numerous trailheads leading to peaks, domes, viewpoints, waterfalls, alpine lakes, and the famous wilderness w/ High Sierra Camps (HSC). The paved route (SR 120) closes annually for winter snow (more than half the year), so reservations are required if planning an overnight stay.
