Good news out of Cal-Trans this week. Ebbetts pass is now open, giving hikers access to some wonderful country along the Pacific Crest Trail.
"Highway 4 (Ebbetts Pass)
[IN THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA AREA]
NO TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS ARE REPORTED FOR THIS AREA."
And Sonora Pass is scheduled to open later this month. The projected date is May 18.
In fact, the last and highest High Sierra Pass,Tioga Pass may well be open before Memorial Day. And that means that the official summer backpacking season is in session!
So where are you headed?
