Is This Rancheria or Crown Valley Trailhead?

If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!

Buck, some very nice pictures. Yeah, that walk down the trail into Tahipite is really something: around 4000 feet of drop. The lower part of the trail was a bit eroded for me. I found a "Shorty"-like cabin, what was left of it, there. The Crown was impossible to cross (early season). I actually met a NP Ranger on that trail! Maybe they fixed the trail up some. Tahipite is a very natural state "Yosemite" valley.

Regardless of how the trailhead is marked, the red line you show on the topo map follows along side Rancheria Creek and leads to Crown Valley. Elevation gain is more gradual vs. the more northerly trail that climbs the ridge to Three Springs, then goes to Crown Valley.

Just enjoy.
