On my hike last summer I took a detour through a town called Markleeville
(sp?), CA. I was told by some locals that there was a trail behind the
Markleeville hot springs that would join up with a road after about 4
miles and that then I could proceed to Echo Lake on the road.
As I was eager to make up time to meet someone at Echo Lake, I took the
Those 4 miles took slightly over 8 hours. I started out on a trail but it
disappeared. I went from one side of a large canyon to the other and
found no sign of a trail. Being a stubborn sort, I traveled over the
worst terrain I have ever hiked to get through.
There was a map available in Markleeville which showed where the trail
was supposed to be. I was too cheap to buy a copy. I am trying to find
one now to see where I went wrong. I don't think it was the USGS map.
If anyone knows of a map of the Markleeville hot springs area which shows
the trail exiting behind the springs, I would like to know how to get a
copy. Alternatively, I would like the phone number of the general store
in Markleeville or even the area code. I am happy to pay for the map.
I've already paid for not having it. ;).
Thanks in advance.
