Sample 43 hikes in California's Golden Trout and South Sierra Wilderness areas. Experience groves of giant sequoia; walk through expansive mountain meadows; or look for California's state fish, the golden trout, in the cool streams of this wilderness paradise. This guide to one of the state's most spectacular roadless regions will help outdoor enthusiasts choose and plan day hikes or backpacking trips that are best suited to their time, energy, and experience. Backcountry guide Suzanne Swedo points out the region's geological features, historical sites, trees, birds, flowers, and mammals, as well as places where the trail is faint, where it is clear, and where rivers and streams are obstacles to travel or special sources of delight.
