Trip reports have been shared with GTW from user Matthew Hengst over at First Church of the Masochist website. Full on stories and plenty of photos to follow his fast pace journeys into the Golden Trout Wilderness. Curious how he did a loop trip from Jerkey Meadow TH to Coyote Lake? How about a speed adventure to summit Tower Rock that looks over the Kern River? What about following, knowingly or not, the long faded path up to Hockett Peak? Check out the links below to read the adventure.
Trip report from Jerky Meadows up the Kern and looping back to the south and descending Deep Creek after climbing Coyote and Angora. Deep Creek was badly burned and isn’t anything near what it once was.
Cottonwood to Little Whitney area to climb Tower & Overlook
Another climbing Hockett via Jerky a few weeks later
Thanks so much for your reports Matthew. Hopefully see more from you in the future. Keep on hiking!
