Join us for the pear-fect weekend in beautiful Sequoia National Park. Get hyped for MASSIVE granite rock faces, CRISPY alpine swimming and some PEAR-CING lookouts. We’ll head out early Friday morning to drive up to Sequoia where we will start hiking mid-day. The hike up to Pear Lake is roughly 6.4 miles with 3,416 ft elevation gain (we’ll pass a few more lakes on the way up.) Saturday morning, we’ll pack up our site at Pear Lake, hike back down and head over to Base Camp nearby where we’ll meet up with the other trips.
