CalWild and Friends of the River have partnered to offer several free guided hikes and camping trips in the Sierras this year to explore some of the potential Wilderness areas and Wild & Scenic River sections at stake in the Forest Service’s current Plan Revisions.
All trips are limited to 20 participants and are free of charge. Participants are responsible for their transportation, camping and hiking gear, and food. For more information and to RSVP, please contact Steve Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 708-3155. Here is the camping trip schedule for June-August 2016:
April 29-May 1 – San Joaquin River Gorge
Family camping in the threatened San Joaquin River Gorge northeast of Fresno. We’ll explore the river gorge recommended by the BLM for Wild & Scenic River protection and discuss the threat proposed by the expensive, unneeded, and destructive Temperance Flat Dam.
May 13-15 – Merced Wild River and Potential Devil Gulch Wilderness
Family camping in a BLM campground on the Merced Wild & Scenic River near Mariposa. We’ll hike downstream to view a segment of the river and the surrounding Merced River Wilderness Study Area threatened by the proposed expansion of McClure Reservoir. We’ll also hike the Hite Cove Trail along the South Fork Merced Wild River into the potential Devil Gulch Wilderness.
May 28-30 – Kings River
Family camping in the beautiful Kings River Special Management Area in the Sierra Nevada foothills about 1.5-2 hours east of Fresno. We’ll hike the Kings River National Recreation Trail along a segment of the Kings River eligible for National Wild & Scenic River protection, and explore a potential addition to the Monarch Wilderness.
