    Aaron Neeley reviewed Capitol Peak

    4 months ago

    Hiked in from the ditch trail to the lake at base camp. We went June 9, 2018 and encountered some snow fields across many of the switch backs at higher elevations. That night got well below freezing as we expected it might. Beautiful hike, although I would recommend going a bit later in the summer. If you hike the upper trail (ditch trail) bring mosquito spray, ditch water is stagnant an full of mosquitoes

    Nice hike, what's better I got to take my first grandchild on her first hike at 2.5 months old. With such precious cargo I calculated every step. The hike is steep and rocky you certainly earn your altitude. Not a far hike and is heavily trafficked. We arrived at 8:am on a the Thursday before Father's Day and the parking lot was already almost full. We did this with a group of about 9, mostly in late teens an early 20's except for my wife and I and of course my granddaughter.

    Aaron Neeley reviewed Half Dome Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    I hiked to summit of Half Dome July 3 2015 there was a really bad thunderstorm and the night before right up until I left at 5:am which was great because the falls were roaring. I had a permit to do the cables and there were two forest rangers checking permits at the base of subdome. By the time I peaked Subdome I was spent but seeing the cables and the summit of Half Dome it seems like that ignited me to shoot up the Dome. From my tent at camp curry I tracked 20 miles and calculated about 6000 feet cumulative elevation gain. As I reached my tent I took my last gulp of water, I burned through 5 liters. If you are packing in your water you can take 3 liters, fill up at the drinking fountain about 1 mile in and hit it again as you are coming out. I took the falls trail up and the John Muir trail down. Very tough day hike but one of my favorite.

    I did this hike in May of 2016 with my wife and 16 year old daughrer. the falls were flowing hard and was a great trip. once at the top of the falls my wife and daughter were spent so I left them to rest and eat, I then jogged another mile to the Yosemite look out across the creek on the next ridge over, well worth the energy if you have it in you. take walking sticks (rubber tips) the hike down is slippery with the fine granulars on the granite boilders. wear booted with good ankle support. Take about 3 liters of water per person or do what I did and take some life straw bottles and fill up as you go. Great views and you get close up to one of our country's greatest waterfalls. The year before I was in Yosemite and hiked Half Dome in July and Yosemite falls was just a trickle, when we hiked the falls in May it was roaring so plan your trip in spring or early summer

    I have done this trail a few time, litteraly right outside my backdoor. It is a great hike to get away from people and spend some time outdoors, you get a lot of views along the way, a couple of glpses of the Bear Valley and one good place to view San Gorgonio peak. the trail is cobble and loose at time so wear good boots with ankle supports. two small streams seem to flow year round but I would suggest packing in your water take about 3 liters. 95% of the trail is shaded and there is a false summit, you think you have hit the top then suddenly you realize you have another 1/2 mile and 600 feet to go. Not a destination hike, unless your local, but if your in the area it is a nice hike. if your goal is to get good views of the Bear Valley and Bear Lake hike the Gouger Crest Trail on the north shore.

    Aaron Neeley reviewed Havasu Canyon Trail

    about 2 years ago

    Yea it could be done in a day but why? My wife and I hiked the 10 miles to Havasu falls and camped for two nights and Hiked out the third day. We went in April of 2016, weather was awesome, not too hot in the day and not too cold at night. We chose to go with a guide that packed our tent and provisions we only packed in our packs with clothes and typical hiking gear. Pygmy Guide service was great and seemed to be the cheapest of the available guides. Do yourself a favor and go to Moody falls, it is a bit sketchy getting down the canyon but well worth it, take some gloves.
