Rockhouse Basin Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This high desertlike valley within Dome Land Wilderness provides stirring views of one of the Sierra’s greatest collection of domes, and makes an ideal early-season backpack trip. Descending easily to a broad valley, our path follows the fenced wilderness boundary on an old four-wheel double-track, sometimes very distinct, but sometimes fading into sagebrush. Bypassing a house, we step across a muddy seasonal creek and rise up a second forested hill, veering away from the fence. Our gentle descent this time takes us into a wilder, narrowing valley. After stepping across Pine Creek, our trail hugs the Kern River as it cuts through a small gorge."
