Please join me on a 3 day backpack to 14,026 ft. Mt. Langley in the Southern Sierra Nevada. It's been a wet winter... be prepared for MOSQUITOES!

Each particiapnt is responsible for their own food and transportation. The cost of this trip is $5.00 per person for the permit. Please bring this to the event.

This is a backpack trip, not a day hike. On Saturday we will meet at the trail head at 11 AM and will hike approximately 6 miles to Long Lake starting at an elevation of 10,040 ft. with about 1500 ft of elevation gain. We will be camping at an elevation of 11145 ft. at Long Lake.

On Sunday we'll get up early and (optionally) don summit/day packs hiking the 10 miles round trip to the peak of Mt. Langley at an elevation of 14026 ft. We will return to our campsite at Long Lake for the night and then on Monday morning we will get up and hike the 6 miles to the trail head and our cars.

NOTE: There is likely to be snow on New Army Pass and on Mt Langley. It is recommended that you bring microspikes or crampons/ice axe if you plan to summit.

This is BEAR country. Approved bear canisters are required. These can be rented from the ranger station and we can also share these 2 people to each full sized canister.

Each participant in this backpacking trip must realize that they are responsible for their own safety while engaging in this activity. We will always strive to stay together but accidents can happen and each participant must be self-sufficient.
