Crabtree to Paiute Lake, Emigrant Wilderness

Pinecrest, California, United States
18.5 miles
Three day backpacking trip with Boy Scout Troop 604.  First day was an easy 3.5 miles from Crabtree Trailhead to Camp Lake.  The lake was fairly busy during this Labor Day weekend, but we were able to find a nice hardened site for 13 people with a view of the lake.  We got to camp early enough for a nice swim in the lake.  There was a nice little granite island near...

Originally attempted to do a loop, but ended up doing a wishbone shaped trip. We made it out to Upper Relief Valley on the first night. On the second day we backtracked to summit Black Hawk Mountain, then camped near Saucer Meadow. We hiked out on the third day.

Kennedy Meadows to Upper Relief Valley

9.8 miles
This trip was in Emigrant Wilderness,CA, just north of Yosemite National Park.  We began our trip at Kennedy Meadows trailhead and hiked almost ten miles to Upper Relief Valley on the first day, returning by the same route the next day.  The sky was clear blue and visibility seemed endless.  Aspen leaves were turning golden yellow, and an end-of-summer dryness filled the air.  Tall, narrow conifer trees (pine, fir, and cedar) accented the glacier-polished...

Emigrant: Granite Dome

We started our hike later than intended, beginning at the end of the road after Crabtree. Packing up and setting off around 9:30 pm towards Powell Lake, we made quick work of the short distance, and with a night sky full of stars, the hike was spectacular. Once at the lake, we set up camp and started a small fire - Damien had actually been to the exact same area only weeks...

Granite and open spaces make the Emigrant Wilderness feel like a less-visited companion to Yosemite National Park.
