    Tejus Kudari reviewed Mount Sizer Loop

    about 1 year ago

    Did this the second time, but camped at Sada's spring this time instead of dayhiking all of it. The site there is perfect for a single tent, with a good spot for a hammock. Going up the 'shortcut' in 90 deg weather in the afternoon with camping gear may not be the best idea, I discovered.

    Out and back. Really worth camping at the lake.

    The Alambique trail heading towards the creek from the crossroads is closed, so doing the figure 8 is not possible (as of 06/03).

    Tejus Kudari reviewed Epicenter to Five Finger Falls

    about 1 year ago

    The log bridge with cable was washed out (as of 4/16/17), so the only way to get to the falls was to stay on the fire road going north west, and going east towards the falls (and back the same way) . The trail was overgrown in several places and quite slushy since it was raining at the time. The waterfall was gushing, and as was the creek (I had to cross in knee deep water in some parts) . If you've parked on the other side of Aptos creek, west of 'Marcel's Forest', there are a few unmarked trails around there as well, so you could lose more time around there. Overall, still a very fun hike.

    Tejus Kudari reviewed Hamilton Lakes (High Sierra Trail)

    almost 2 years ago

    There is not a moment where the views aren't amazing on this trail. Couple of things to note - the distance is actually 15.3 miles each way, at least according to the signs on the trail. The turnoff road to go to the Crescent Meadow parking lot had a ‘road closed to traffic’ sign, but the park staff let you drive through when you show them your Wilderness Permit (this way you don’t have to take the shuttle to the trail). The first mile or two was pretty bad in terms of bugs (gnats / mosquitoes?), but got much better later on. A head net came in very handy.
    The trail after Bearpaw Meadow descends about 1.5 miles and then has a 2.4 mile climb up to Hamilton Lakes. This part is exposed a good amount, and if you have a fear of heights (like I do), things stay pretty spicy.
    I have to say, the pit toilet at Hamilton Lakes has the best views in the world a toilet can offer. You’ll see. The creeks along the way still had a decent amount of water, so finding a source of water was not much of a problem. Overall, the trip took 7 hrs 10 mins going to the lakes, and about 7 hrs 30 coming back. Highly recommend this trail.
