Straddling the crest in the central part of the Sierra Nevada, this wilderness preserves the glaciated High Sierra lands between Highway 4 and Highway 108. The vast majority of the wilderness is easily accessible, yet lightly used.
Schaffer covers all the trails in this wilderness of glaciated canyons and spectacular views. Both trails and cross-country routes are shown on the book’s foldout topographic map, which shows elevations at all trail junctions plus distances between junctions. Hikes range from easy dayhikes to multi-day backpacks.
