High Sierra Trail, Day 4 – Kern Hot Spring to Packer Camp

Postby 63ChevyII » Fri Jul 31, 2015 9:24 am

Day 4 of 6 of our HST Hike last month. One of most physically and mentally demanding days on the trail. I'm glad I spent the last few gym sessions before my trip walking on a treadmill with my pack and hiking boots.

Leg 4 (as tracked): Kern Hot Springs to Packer Camp || 8 miles || +3563, -470 || +3093 net elevation gain || 13 hours

Details and full photo gallery (25 photos) are posted here:
