There are over 100 lakes and many miles of streams within a day’s ride. So much to see! Why not make a trip deeper into the Sierra easier on yourself? Our pack station offers spot trips to a variety of destinations.

Spot Trips

For your trip, gear is packed to a pre-determined destination, and dropped off. You will depart from the pack station on horseback along with your packer and gear to the pre-determined destination. If you are a hiker, you can start your hiking adventure once you have dropped off your gear with your packer, and the packer will deliver your gear. Spot trips are available one-way and round-trip.

Spot  trips are available throughout the John Muir and Ansel Adams Wilderness. There is an excess of 100 lakes and many miles of streams within a day’s ride. We will be happy to recommend secluded camp spots and seldom visited lakes and streams.
