Horse riding in the Alps.

The views were great, and being above 4,000 ft. meant no Poison Oak! The weather was warm in the afternoons.

Nothing like the views you will love the small town feel and beauty all around you. Nature trails all around. Great exercise and great relaxing peaceful place.

We had the most amazing backpacking trip with our nephew and my brother-in-law who had been backpacking. Now they are hooked! So - Just Do It! Hooray for the Pacific Crest Trail!

This is another example of pristine wilderness preserved by the usda. There are hikes for every level of fitness and commitment. Almost every hike takes you to breathtaking views of rugged mountains or alpine lakes...or both.

Beautiful. Lots of elevation change. Pack light with good boots. We hiked big flat to deer creek to caribou lake back to big flat 24 miles. The Caribou scramble was killer. Fun times.

The Trinity Alps Wilderness is a vast gorgeous expanse that is amazing year round. From Summer hikes, to Winter snow shoeing, the trails and lakes are easily located and user friendly. A must for avid hikers!

We stayed at the Hidden Horse campground with our horses. This is an excellent camp that usually has vacant spots without the need for reservations. The Trinity Alps are rugged and remote.
