Description

* Author conceived and pioneered the Sierra High Route * Covers Kings Canyon National Park to northern Yosemite National Park * Each route chapter includes points of interest, maps, approach instructions, and directions No ordinary guidebook, Sierra High Route leads you from point to point through a spectacular 195-mile timberline route in California’s High Sierra. The route follows a general direction but no particular trail, thus causing little or no impact and allowing hikers to experience the beautiful sub-alpine region of the High Sierra in a unique way. With access points noted along the way, the route can be broken into week-long segments, and hikers can choose segments for their skill level. Each of the five route chapters includes an overview highlighting geographical and historical points of interest, maps, difficulty ratings, approach instructions, safety considerations, directions, alternate routes, and accessible non-technical climbs.
