I'm looking to do a 5-day hike starting the day after Labor Day and I need a few recommendations. My loop, which is not set in stone, could go something like this:
Day 1 - start at Tuolumne Meadows, Lyell Canyon, Camp at Ireland Lake.
Day 2 - pass through Vogelsang, go over Vogelsang Pass, follow Lewis Creek Trail and camp somewhere there.
Day 3 - pass through Merced Lake, Echo Valley, camp along Echo Creek Trail.
Day 4 - climp up Echo Creek, go over Cathedral Pass, camp at one of Cathedral Lakes.
I haven't been on Lewis Creek Trail before and was wondering if there's good campsites along the trail past the turnoff to Bernice Lake. Or is Bernice the better option? Any other recommendations in that area?
I also haven't been on Echo Creek Trail and was under the impression there was good campsites on the lower end of the trail, does anyone have a recommendation?
Thank you in advance.
