EASTERN SIERRAS – HORSESHOE MEADOWS
Another difficult climb as we climb some giant switchbacks on the flanks of the Sierra with an incredible vista of the wide open Owens Valley! A false summit is followed by a short descent before climbing resumes to Horseshoe Meadows (el. 10,080'). On the way back to town we’ll cycle through the lovely Alabama Hills. SHORT route starts just before the first big switchback at 6,500’. The EZ START option (need carpool) follows the SHORT route, then glides all the way back down to Lone Pine. Carry your lunch and a lot of water for the ride (water is only available at summit). This ride is co-listed with ACTC.
