Adan, sorry to hear your trip got cancelled, but there's always plenty of time for more trips. Thanks for adding me to the list and I'm sure we can coordinate something in the near future.
Dome Land Wilderness was great. We went in from the east off of the Long Valley Road. The trailhead is now up on the Long Valley Rd, the old dirt road is closed down into Rockhouse Basin, so you have to walk down the old dirt road. We dropped down into Rockhouse Basin to the SF of the Kern, then hiked north past the PCT junction to the Dome Land Trail. We camped at the confluence of Trout Creek and the SF Kern. Plenty of water there. Had to ford the Kern using Beaver dams to get across. The days are short and the nights are long (close to 14 hours of darkness) this time of year, so being able to have a campfire at night and in the morning is really nice.
Next day we hiked up the Dome Land Trail to Woodpecker Trail then down to Manter meadow. Be aware, the east/west trails through DLW are more like cross country routes than a lot of cross country routes that I've done. I would guess that there hasn't been any trail maintenance done in many years and that only a handful of people use these trails each year. That's my guess anyway. There was water in much of Tibbets Creek where the trail crossed or was near it. Lots of blow down trees and overgrowth obscures the trail for probably 50% or more of the 7 or so miles. Woodpecker Trail was well used but still a lot of blow downs to go around.
Manter Meadow is huge and lots of water there. We camped at the outlet which is somewhere around 7,000 ft. Several large campsites there with big fire rings. We had a nice fire to help stave off the chilly evening that dropped quickly down to 15 degrees.
The next day we headed out the Manter Trail through little Manter Meadow then up and over into Rockhouse Meadow. Again, a lot of it was more like XC than some of the XC I've done in the Sierra. The dropping down the east side into Rockhouse Meadow was 1400 ft of extremely steep trail. One of the signs said "not recommended for stock" and they weren't kidding. You'd have to be pretty crazy to take a horse up this route. Rockhouse Meadow had lots of water and the SF Kern ford was actually on a 4WD road that lead back to the old 4WD road we hiked in on. The 1200 ft climb on the dirt road back to the car was not fun.
My first time there and it was a pretty cool area. Would like to go back during fishing season (missed it by 5 days) and fly fish the SF Kern. Saw some nice trout in there. Maybe next spring, just have to watch out for all the rattlesnakes in Rockhouse Basin when it's warm. Too cold for any this trip.
