Golden Trout trip with Backcountry Horsemen

3020In early June we did a great trip down in the Golden Trout Wilderness, at the invitation of the Backcountry Horsemen and the Pacific Crest Trail Association, and with the Inyo National Forest. The adventure was in the middle of our gloomy June so we had great, cool, working conditions and even a bit of snow. After negotiating the lengthy drive from Bishop to the Black Rock Trailhead, near Kennedy Meadows we spent a night at the trailhead and then made the trek to Jordan Hot Springs. Some thirteen of us spent the next three days clearing MANY fallen trees off the trail down to the Kern and the nearby Red Rock trail. We removed at least thirty trees, many of which were greater than 24″ in diameter. Clicking the photo will bring you to a gallery of the trip.
