Illiloutte Campsites

Postby robow8 » Wed Nov 02, 2016 3:14 pm

Thinking of doing the Red Peak Pass loop again next. (Never too early to start planning, right?) In 2014, we started at Happy Isles, and camped at the established sites at the Clark Fork. This time, we're planning on starting at Mono Meadow, and we would like to hike a little further than the Clark Fork sites. Anybody have any info on sites between Clark Fork and the Merced Pass trail junction?

about a mile past the Clark Fork crossing the trail starts to run along Illilouette Creek pretty much all the way to Lower Merced Pass Lake. There are numerous campsites along this stretch of the trail. Remember to camp 100 feet from water...and Leave No Trace!
