Detail Map of waypoint HS11
in High Sierra Trail:
(scroll down for directions, waypoints, and area map)
- HS11 is a large box, at about 8200 feet,
in the GPS route HIGH SIERRA TR.
- Note: There are three standard boxes near the outlet of Lake 8235:
two are immediately obvious from the trail, one is a bit obscure.
All three are southwest of where the trail crosses the outlet stream.
- Directions from Gary Craig, with GPS waypoint, August 2002:
This is the northern box, obvious from the trail. There is a map on the signboard
that one sees upon entering the camping area showing the 'official' camp
spots, the boxes, and the outhouse. But I found the map rather confusing.
- Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
Three boxes in the main camp area at the west end of Hamilton Lake.
- HS11 coordinates: (see waypoint and interactive map links above)
