Eagle Peak from Yosemite Creek or Tamarack Flat

Postby mikerain » Tue May 28, 2019 9:47 pm

I'm trying to find these distances for a big day hike:
- From Tamarack Flat Campground to Eagle Peak and then to the Valley
- From Yosemite Creek Campground to Eagle Peak and then to the Valley

I'm getting conflicting numbers. For example, Tamarack to Valley without detour to Eagle Peak...
11.5 miles per this:
https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/upload/valleyhikes.pdf
16.0 miles per this:
https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/upload/trailheads.pdf

Does anyone know accurate distances?

I use caltopo.com to estimate distances. Some trails on it have a snap-to when you're tracing routes, some don't, but it helps you get a good idea of distances.

For example - Tamarack Flat to the Valley floor with a side trip to Eagle Peak: https://caltopo.com/m/H8JF
15 and a half miles or so. Right click on the line to generate a elevation profile.

Blue line is from Yosemite Creek. 12.74 miles to Eagle and then to the valley floor.

Almostthere, thank you very much! Caltopo.com is excellent, and thanks for mapping those trails for me.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, I didn't see your post until just now. I thought the forum emailed me of new posts but apparently not.
