In the middle of the season that probably wouldn't be an issue. Right now? I was over Kaiser Pass on Saturday - there's hardly anyone out and about this time of year. Definitely a dropoff in traffic after Labor Day.

Hi Cardiff,

Welcome to HST!

Anyone have any experience hitching from Florence Lake back to the Bear Dam Trailhead?


When were you planning to try to hitch a ride for this trip?

Yeah, like AT said, this time of the year that place is much less used and hitching a ride would be extremely difficult. Good luck if you do try.
