Needs a location


On this hike in the Desolation Wilderness we’ll explore the “enchanted pools” along the creek above Wrights Lake, and visit isolated Umpa Lake. Hike stats: 6.5 miles (round trip), elevation gain 1,100', starting elevation 6900’. This is a moderately paced hike over a rocky trail with significant elevation gain. About a third of this hike is off-trail and includes some bushwhacking and rock hopping. There are also two challenging water crossings. Hikers must be in good to excellent condition. Bring the essentials, including water, snacks, lunch, sturdy hiking boots, layered clothing due to changeable weather conditions and $$ for carpool drivers. No minors. No dogs. Rain cancels.

We will meet in the Sacramento area and carpool to the trail head. Leader will email meeting place info to RSVPs.
