Yosemite Ten Lakes Take II, July 21.

  • Jul 21, 2012 · 11:00 AM

In an earlier trip this season we couldn’t make it all the way to Ten Lakes because of poor trail conditions (a sudden snow storm brought 10” of snow the night before the trip!). So this trip is to finish the job.


A quick weekend trip starting at Ten Lakes trailhead, off hwy 120. From the trailhead to the basin is about 7 miles.

Saturday: meet at the trailhead. Start hiking around noon to Ten Lakes. Camp for the night

Sunday: explore Ten Lakes basin. Hike back to the trailhead after a stop at Grant Lakes.

This is a relatively easy trip, but it has some steep climbs (elevation gain about 2000 ft). Bear canisters are required. Since it’s July, expect some bugs near water.


There are still 4 spots available on this trip (total of 6 people). If more than 4 people sign up, the usual lottery would apply.

    I am coming from Monterey; I can meet you somewhere on the way there. I would prefer to go on Friday after work as well and camp somewhere in the park.

    I'd like to carpool too. I'm coming from SF. I can drive but I've got a 2-seater so I could only take 1 other, so it'd probably be more sensible for me to ride with someone. I'd prefer to drive out Friday night and camp close to the trailhead...

    Mae, it's a bit too late, sorry. The only thing I can do now is to add you as number 21 on the lottery list.

    The first 4 people on this list will be moved to the Yes list, and you must confirm your spot by Monday 8 pm. I will send an email to the first 4 with instructions on how to confirm your spot. If I don’t hear from you by then I will assume you are not interested anymore, and will move down the list as people are dropped off or if they have changed their plans.
