Trinity Alps last minute hike - Suggested routes? on 07/01/2010 21:35:52 MDT Print View

Wife decided it's high time we hit dirt again. It's been a whole three weeks since our last adventure in Hoh Valley.

Since it's July 4'th weekend were eliminating anything obvious and focusing our efforts on the Trinity Alps area in hopes of reasonable solitude.

Need last minute suggestions on a 18-25ish three day two night route. Snow level is reported to be ~6000 and creeks are a flowin. This is our first trip in this area. Wish she would give me more notice, but when she's game I must cease the moment!

Thanks! You guys came through BIG TIME with Eagle Creek-Wahtum Lake loop, Silver Falls loop, Hoh Valley River Trail. Hoping for a repeat! ;)

There is a great web site for trail reports in the Trinitys. Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The last report showed few trails open due to snow, high water or downed trees but Canyon Creek is open to the lakes and if you hike slow you could make it three days.

Stuart Fork should do it. 14 miles in. Beautiful scenery.
