One of the best things about our Trans-Sierra route is that we travel the paths less traveled. Sometimes that means we won’t know trail conditions until we’re actually on the trail. There is very little trail information available for the first five days of the trek – our group departing next week could very well be the first to cut a path over Colby Pass. There is, however, pretty good information available for the area around Mt. Whitney, and the 15-20 miles of our trek that overlaps with the PCT and JMT. Above are a few pictures we’ve gleamed from the web of what trail conditions currently look like over the last 1-3 days. The good news is that temperature in the Central Valley is forecast to remain over 100 for at least the next week, which means the snow pack will continue to melt at a rapid pace!
