Description

This challenging backpacking trip covers 50 miles of Emigrant wilderness.

The most challenging portion is the first day which covers 15 miles with almost 5000 ft of elevation gain.

The hike begins at Kennedy Meadows Resort and forms a loop to finish at the same location.

There are several small creek crossings and a bear canister is a necessity.
