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.

Ansel Adams Maps

Ansel Easton Adams was a famous photographer who shot black and white images of the Sierra Nevada and Yosemite National Park in the early 1900’s. Part of the original Wilderness Act in 1964 as the Minarets Wilderness, after his death in 1984, the area was expanded and renamed in honor of Ansel Adams, well-known environmentalist and nature photographer.

Four topographic maps cover the Ansel Adams Area: USDA, Tom Harrison Maps, Wilderness Press & NatGeo Maps

Overview Yosemite National Park Map #206

 

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.
