Help give back at Lover's Leap and participate in the Trail Enhancement efforts this Saturday, Aug 11, 2012 at Lover's Leap.
Please spread the word. Climbing, Making Trails Better, Clean Up and Fun with your fellow climbers. Sponsored by The Access Fundís Conservation Team.
Details: Meet at the campground at 10:00a.m. BRING TOOLS if you have them (particularly loppers, shovels, and rock bars), and also bring gloves, a water bottle, sunscreen, snacks, and climbing gear!
From the Bay Area / Sacramento: Head East on highway 50 towards Placerville. Continue past Placerville to the town of Strawberry, which is approximately 8 miles past the more marked Kyburz. Turn off the freeway onto the small route that parallels the 50 just on the far side of the Strawberry lodge, which is hard to miss on your right. This is about 40 miles past Placerville. You get a good glimpse of the west and main walls as you get close to the Lodge on a clear day.
From Lake Tahoe: Head 18 miles West on Highway 50 to the town of Strawberry, where you should head a left just before the Strawberry Lodge, which will approach on your left after a magnificent view of Loverís Leap looming to the left on the way to the lodge.
From the Strawberry Lodge: Follow the road that Parallels the 50. At the junction, head left, and travel through the small neighborhood quietly and slowly, as advised by local signs. You will run directly into the parking lot about 1/3 mile later.
