Planning for my spring and summer, I'm looking for suggestions for 2-3 day trips to tide me over until I have a real vacation. I know that all the parks are great, so what I'm looking for are suggestions of specific routes, whether a linkage of different trails, a map, or even a set of destinations to use in forming a loop.
Recognizing that a 3 day trip means different things to different people: I can comfortably cover about 15 miles a day on a well maintained trail without particularly extreme elevation changes. I'd rather go off trail, which is usually slower depending on terrain (off trail on part of the Trinity High Route was incredibly slow for me, off trail in the parts of Desolation that I've been to wasn't much slower than on trail hiking). As a rule of thumb, for weekend solo trips, I don't like to do anything where it would be a good idea to carry an ice axe.
I realize this is a pretty general request--thanks for everybody's patience. If you're interested in joining me on trips like this in the next couple months, send me a personal message.
I realize that this isn't a trip report. This post ended up here because I thought to ask after I didn't find what I was looking for in other people's trip reports. Where should a post like this go?
