This is a great trip and I wish I was available. I will be in Spain over the Memorial Day weekend on a bicycling vacation. However, I will my eyes opened for the next time. Thank you for the suggestion, as it is a "great one." Rene

I like this idea, but think a different weekend could also be considered. Memorial Day weekend can often be difficult as people have plans in place already, often with their family. Also, I’ve been to hot springs that can be very busy (so busy not everyone can be in the water when they choose to). Although I don’t know these hot springs, I would imagine this could be the case for Memorial Day weekend.

Looks like fun. Goodbye winter, hello spring. Finally. If cabins at Bear Creek State Park are unavailable that weekend, the perhaps Douthat State Park could be a Plan B? Unfortunately, the clothing optional Jefferson Pools in nearby Warm Springs are closed until further notice.

Mo, problem is, down that way, there is no way of knowing when there will be snow. It was looking good, but I'm guessing this warm spell will melt a lot of snow down that way.

Dear npd1164, glad you posted this as it's a beautiful hike, although not sure a spring hike is best idea since many trails are closed typically at that time of year due spring runoff and trail conditions. Looking further south, you might consider Mt. Ascutney as winter hike, perhaps on a warmer day if cold is a deterrent. I like the mountain and views, and would be interested in a winter hike there. Let's see what others have to say? Best, Fred

We're certainly up for snowshoeing in the Sierras, have done so in the past, have the gear, and are completely flexible on time. It's just a matter of waiting for decent conditions to make a plan. Plumas and Lassen National Forests are also possibilities in addition to Tahoe.

Does anyone else feel motivated to research that? Yours, Daniel

I'm quite interested if the date(s) works for me. I have my own crossover kayak w/skirt, can do Class II, but can't roll. . Has any thought been given to getting a group lesson or teaching trip from a reliable/certified instructor/outfitter.

For spring break a year ago last March, I did several of the trails in the Arbuckle Wildlife Management Area along Arbuckle Lake. I did it as a multi-night camping trip. But they can certainly be done individually as day hikes. All but one trail was very well managed; not wanting to do trailblazing and bushwhacking, I avoided that one section.

There is also an outlook tower at the top you can climb up, if you want to. It think the total hike is maybe an hour up, perhaps a little over 1000 foot vertical gain? Now there are two ways you can go. At a certain fork in the road, you can bear right and take the snowmobile trail up, which is a grassy walk. At some point the snowmobile trail goes straight a

Didn't really get much interest last year either. Doesn't seem to be much activity in northern California in general as well. I've got my theories .... Squaw has more than enough snow on the upper mountain to conduct operations thru Memorial Weekend. BTW, I both ski & ride. Alpine & Squaw are my home mountains where I teach. Mammoth is open til Memorial weekend, too so I'm also open to that option.
