Merced Lake High Sierra Camp

Yosemite, California

Merced Lake High Sierra Camp Professional Review and Guide

"Merced Lake is the site of the largest of the High Sierra Camps and the farthest from any trailhead. The hike up the Giant Staircase along the Merced River allows you to experience the river in its many moods and to appreciate the power of the glaciers that carved and polished the canyon. Expect lots of company; it's a popular route."
