Backpacking from Dowdy Ranch
Backpacking permit and parking fees required ($8 per car per night, $5 per person per night).
Potable water is available at the trailhead.
In summer, temperatures above 90 degrees between 11AM and 7:30-8PM are not unusual. Hike early in the morning and late in the evening. Plan shorter trips when necessary to prevent heat exhaustion.
(Distance and elevation gain is for roundtrip unless indicated otherwise)
