Jct Long Lake Main trail junction Campsite

My favorite campsite at Powell Lake is in southeast corner, I have camped there twice. It is suitable for maybe 4 tents. The site has granite terraces to sit & view the lake and to prepare & eat meals. It gets afternoon sun.

Main trail junction Campsite

Toejam Lake has several nice campsites in the southeast corner. There are other campsites around the lake, some even on the mid-west side. I have been told that Toejam Lake is a great starting point to visit Leopold Lake.

Main trail junction Campsite

My second visit to Wire Lake, and probably to the same campsite. It is definitely one of my favorites. Located on the east side of the lake, the camp has immediate access to a sandy beach with a few granite rocks and gets afternoon sun. I prepared all meals on the beach while sitting in a “camprest” chair (how nice). The campsite is suitable for about 6-8 tents. There are other campsites on the west side. To reach this campsite: From the trail junction at the lake travel on the trail going east. Follow the trail past the small island, then the trail runs directly into the campsite.

Description

To reach the trailhead: (a) On the Pinecrest Road, make a turn at the Dodge Ridge Ski area sign (0.5 mile from the Steam Donkey or 0.3 mile from the Ranger Station), (b) continue 4.3 miles until the road T’s making a left hand turn on to Crabtree Road, and (c) continue on this road for another 8.5 miles to the Gianelli Cabin trailhead passing along the way a horse camp (1.8 miles from the T) and the Crabtree Camp trailhead road (4.5 miles from the T). Past the horse camp the road becomes a maintained (and slow) dirt road. There are several options to return from the trailhead. Of course one is to use the To directions in reverse. You can save a bit of time if at the T you turn right (back to Pinecrest) and then stay on 4N26 (Crabtree Road) to highway 108. The general guideline is once you are on one of these alternate roads, always take the downhill paved path, any of these should intersect 108. Listed here are various GPS readings for key trail junctions from the Gianelli trailhead to Wire and Long Lakes. Each of these is marked by a “new” Forest Service trail post.
