Backpacking Sequoia Ntl. Park in October

Recommended Posts


Hello Everyone, 

I'm interested in backpacking Sequoia Ntl. Park in October this year, starting at Mineral King and making a loop heading north through Bear Meadow onto the Sierra High Trail, east to Kern River and south to Rattlesnake Creek, heading west and north through Franklin Pass. Any thoughts as to what the trail might be like at this time of year? Weather? Likelihood of running into bears or mountain lions? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
