A new trip titled Groundhog Meadow Loop is an ambitious 3 day trip to Groundhog meadow / Golden Trout Creek. There is another trip to Groundhog already listed under the Up to 7 Days section, but if you are on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains it is a long drive just to get to the Blackrock Trailhead. This trip was designed to start and end in Horseshoe Meadow. It is 31.5 miles in length.
However, don’t be put off by the short time and high mileage. The trip description includes places where you can camp to shorten the miles per day. Granted, this means the trip will take longer up to 6 days. Enjoy seeing old volancos, landing strips, large high elevation meadows, lava flows, grand vistas, and more.
