Rock climbing at Little Yosemite was the best! It’s bouldering in the wild

Trail was a bit steeper than it’s seems from the photos. But really great this time of year

Pretty views and green hills. Pay attention to the signs so you don’t go off trail like we did 2-3 times

Definitely a new favorite. We had a group of three along with three pups. We started later in the day, stopped at every creek opportunity, and got to enjoy the peak elevation at the most gorgeous time of day. Lots of wild flowers, hawks, and turkeys about!

This trail has a very long and steep incline most of the way. The way back is mostly in shade and you have several options to go different routes. This whole area has a huge trail system that can lead to lots of different places. Cows galore. Make sure youy do not get in between them, and their calf.
