View Full Version : Few days in So Cal to hike

I have 3-4 days I can hike for coming up. I am pretty new to the area and have no idea what is really around me. I know the PCT begins in Campo but its also going to be pretty hot this weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can hike for a few days, maybe 25-30 miles total.

Look up info on Kings Canyon, I don't know much about the area but I did a 70 miler out in California, Think we launched out of Fresno and drove a bit... but really cool sequoia parks and some good peaks, think we were up to 9k. Again, I don't know much about the area but have fun.

If you want to try the PCT, I liked the area around Mt. San Jacinto. You may even be able to make a loop out of it. It's gonna be backed this weekend though.

If you like desert hiking, try Anza Borrega desert or Joshua Tree NP.
Both very very nice desert hiking.
Anza Borrega can be higher elevation so somewhat cooler.

ended up going from Lake Morena to Mt Laguna. It was a great hike, if a little short.. Lots of dried up water spots which concerned me. But overall a good walk. The sun is sooo oppressive my god! Felt like I was gonna be sick today after like 13 miles, thank god it was check out time.
