Experience the stunning high elevation terrain of the Mokelumne Wilderness strolling through alpline lakes, meadows, granite and volcanic terrains. About 14 miles and 2K in total elevation gain. Depart from the Carson Pass Trailhead (East) on Saturday. Please plan to arrive by 10:30AM to be ready to leave by 11AM. Option to meet on Friday and camp at Martin Meadows. On Saturday, we will stay outside of CPMA which will allow us to have a fire (conditions permitting). I am also up for staying till Monday to do a side trip if anyone is interested.
Carson Pass Trailhead is 6 mi east of Kirkwood Ski Area on the right (south) side of road. There is a $5.00 fee per vehicle per day to park in trailhead lot.
Martin Meadows camp area is approximately two miles past the silverlake campgrounds on the north side of Hwy 88, between thunder mtn and horse canyon trailheads. There is a small group of Aspens on the north side to serve a visual que. A note will be left on the message board as to go right or left and the vehicles to look for.
Permit limits the group to eight. If there are enough people wait-listed and another trip leader volunteers, we could have two separate group go.
Feel free to email me with any questions. Looking forward to it!
