    Where exactly are we going, for how long and what happens each day with elevation, mileage? So many questions-individual commissary or what? Carpooling from where?

    Can someoneupdate the link at sequoiahistory? Is that the page that describes the hike? That webpage does not work anymore. I can't find a webpage for it either.

    Dates are key, yes. Sounds like a good trip. I did part of the Rae Lakes a few years ago.

    I'll do a SEKI trip in the first week of March 2015. My van sleeps 4 so we don't have to camp in the snow every night, and I would like to do at least a couple of days backcountry skiing/camping. Snowshoe'ers would also be welcome, as would be of course more people with their own cars.

    Seeking: backpackers with a vehicle for a trip to the Lost Coast for this Friday 1/2 to Monday 1/5 (trip was advanced to catch the sunny weather right after the New Year). Must have: sense of adventure and appreciation for mindblowing coastal beauty. I have an extra tent and backpack if needed. We'll drop one car off at Shelter Cove and the other at the northern end of the Kings Range to do the 3 night one way hike. If you are unfamiliar, this place is singular in its beauty and lack of development along the California coast. Reach me at watsonix@gmail Cheers!

    I'm interested however, I need to know the timeframe to prepare the right backpacking gear. I don't have a four season tent.

      I agree. Who is the host for this trip? I cannot find it on the event page.

      As long as it's not snowing heavily and you have your rainfly, you don't really need a 4 season tent.

    Have been planning a similar trip but prefer to do it with friends. Need to know the trip dates for planning.

    Sounds good to me. I just got back from the Grand Canyon and mountains would be nice!
    Date and weather, I'm curious.

    When I tried that link, said link not found.

    • Christopher M.

      Try googling "sequoia kings canyon national park trip planner 2014" look for links to wilderness or overnight backpacking and plan your trip. The Rae Lakes Loop is nice. I'm available the beginning of December.

      October 17, 2014

    • Saurabh G.

      I did the Rae Lakes loop in 3 days back in 2012. It is gorgeous! One of the best backpacking trips I have been on.
