Creek Crossings on Trail to Fremont Lake, Hoover Wilderness

Postby Ikan Mas » Wed Jun 03, 2015 12:47 pm

Was thinking of making an early season, relatively low elevation overnight hike from Leavitt Meadows to Fremont Lake in the Hoover Wilderness. I'm going solo, so would be concerned if there were any tough river or creek crossings to be made. Has anyone been up this way in the early season and can tell me about crossings? I've been through much of Emigrant and the southern half of Hoover, so I have a feel for the area.

I'm a Level 4 hiker, but will be staying on the trails this trip, because I am solo.

I am comfortable with Class 3 terrain and river crossings, but I like to be on the safe side.

I'm planning on some fishing and if I can't get to Fremont Lake, I'll probably come back down the trail to Poore or one of the other lakes in the area.Not a huge loss if I have to turn back. I will be taking photos of fish and conditions for a TR. No dog.

Thanks for your help.

Rangers were out yesterday, reporting Walker to be running very high and very swift, extreme caution advised.

Thanks, I may temper my trip this weekend. Looks like rain is in the forecast anyway.
