Hankering for a hike? There's a furrific trail nearby! Check out Twenty Lakes Basin Loop for a scenic walk by some alpine lakes. The rocky pathway is about eight miles long and offers views of wildflower-dotted meadows, waterfalls, and peaks like Tioga Crest and Shepherd Crest. During your travels, watch for mule deer, black bears, and other wildlife. If your explorations include plans to enter the Hoover or Ansel Adams Wilderness, check with the ranger about any applicable permits.
Bring your four-legged pal camping with you, but keep them attended and on-leash at all times. They can even join you on the trails. Immediately collect their poop and throw it in the garbage to avoid attracting potentially dangerous wildlife.
