    Brian Hayman reviewed Big Pine Lakes Trail

    2 months ago

    My attempt at this trail ended with me returning before the lakes. Started late around 2pm and returned to the trail head by 8:30pm for a total of 1900+ feet elevation gain. My fault for not having altitude training before hand.

    The trail is well defined and has spectacular views, this trail makes for a very nice swim location and starting point for the Palisades Peak.

    Brian Hayman reviewed Seven Teacups Trail

    2 months ago

    This trail is in a well visited part of the Kern river, plan to get there before all the campers as parking is limited to about 20 cars. The trail is very mild as it follows the trail with at most a 3-4 hundred foot gains and loss.

    In order to get to the tea cups one must ford the river. Following the route leads to a calm area to swim/float across. One can access the first tea cup easily.

    If visiting the other tea cups I Highly recommend climbing shoes if not taking repelling gear. In order to see all seven cups one must be skilled at boldering, repelling and general mountaineering.

    I forgot to turn record off while driving back the route was 6 miles round trip.

    Enjoy!

    The trees are amazing, the trail is a very light paved walk in a loop. It was a nice casual stroll. Be prepared to pay the GOV $5 for parking. And no an America The Beautiful pass will not be accepted.

    This peak view is awesome, I took a modified route up and the traditional route back. It took a total of 4L of water and 6 hrs to complete. Not the highest in DV but the most loved. Expect class 2-3 on the way. Posting a pic of my modified route.

    Brian Hayman reviewed Mount Gould Trail

    about 1 year ago

    My trip was an overnight starting at the Onion Valley trailhead, then on to Heart Lake for the night. The next day from Heart Lake to Kearsarg Pass at 11,758.

    The above route is nothing to galk at as each of those are also rated as hard but well worth the effort, as Heart Lake can only be reached by a 600ft climb up or down based on entry point.

    Once one reaches Kearsarg one heads up the incline increases via 1000 feet in half mile, then after circumventing the three false peaks one then reaches Gould at 13,005ft in three quarters of a mile.

    I have attached a picture of Gould taken from the third false peak just to show the peak. While the third false peak is only 12,995ft but is not as technically challenging as Gould.

    The peak will yeld some of the majestic views one can only achieve by climbing to such heights.

    Brian Hayman reviewed Kearsarge Pass Trail to Kearsarge Lakes

    about 1 year ago

    This trail is rated correctly as hard, One starts at Lone Pine to obtain the proper permits titled "Kearsarg Trail" then head to Independence, then all the way up Onion Valley. This is a very popular exit point for the PCT and the JMT so pay it forward and pick up some hiker trash.

    I modified the route to end at Lake Charlotte which is an additional 3.5 miles past Kearsarg peak. Which goes along the PCT and JMT for a short period. Once at the lake the views are stunning. There is also a ranger station at the lake. Camping is limited to two days only.

    Water: from the trail head water can be obtained at the first lake easily. If only going to the pass then three liters will be fine, if continuing water can then be obtained at the Kearsarg lakes I recommend two liters to make Lake Charlotte.

    Round trip is roughly 15.5 miles with a start elevation gain of 2369 from Onion Valley then on the return an elevation gain of 1390.
