|Our first ride is the trek up to Rock Creek Meadow. Head out from the Pack Station on a trail that crosses Rock Creek then heads up the switchbacks toward the high country and the John Muir Wilderness. Arrive at Rock Creek Meadow where our base camp has been set up by our guides. |
All of our activities take place in the John Muir Wilderness which extends along the crest of the Sierra Nevada for 90 miles in the Inyo and Sierra National Forests. Established in 1964 by the Wilderness Act and named for naturalist John Muir, it contains 581,000 acres. The wilderness stretches along the eastern escarpment of the Sierra from near Mammoth Lakes in the north, to Cottonwood Pass in the south.
