Lake Vernon and Tiltill Valley Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lake Vernon lies in a real subalpine setting at an elevation of only 6,568 feet, so this loop is a good way to get in a real High Sierra backpack while the higher country is still under snow.The wild flowers and waterfalls along the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir on the last leg of the trip are spectacular; there are Native American sites to investigate in Tiltill Valley and good camping at Rancheria Falls."
