Yooooo Alex and Matt here ready to take you on a rip-rollin Sequoia lake-hike adventure. We’ll be arising with the dawn on Saturday, driving up to Sequoia National Park, and setting up camp at the beautiful Cold Springs Campground, which has been described as “nature’s playground.” “You will hear the sound of your friend’s laughter echoing through the trees,” says one recent visitor to the site.
THEN we’ll head out on a 7.2 mile day hike to Eagle Lake, a picturesque beauty. We’ll spend the night at Cold Springs, wake up, spread the cheer, and enjoy a 9.4 mile hike to the Monarch Lakes– not one, but TWO alpine lakes up in the High Sierras. Both hikes will include grand valleys, ragged mountain peaks, giant trees, and big smiles.
So if you’re ready to fly like an eagle come spread your wings with us in a bountiful two days in Sequoia National Park. Nameste.
**We need one driver. Driver will be compensated for gas plus soommme.
