Any suggestions for a 5 day loop? on 09/14/2013 13:53:57 MDT Print View

I have plans to do the Clark Range loop out of Quartz Mt. trailhead this coming week. I was up at Chain lakes last week, and we had smoke blow in on us the 3rd day. So, I am thinking I should do an alternate trip to avoid possible smoke.

I did the JMT last year, so I am trying to avoid hitting anything going onto the JMT just to see some new scenery. Any good loop suggestions in Kings Canyon/Sequioa or something out of the Eastern Sierra?

Thanks for any suggestions... Looking for something in the 50 mile range

One I've been wanting to do is Horseshoe Meadows over new Army Pass, up through Miter Basin over through Crabtree Lakes and then back around via Guyot and Rock Creek. Not sure on the mileage. Mt. Whitney is right there and you could go up if you want. I've been up enough that I'd rather just do the loop. Not sure on the mileage though.
