Day Three - Golden Trout Wilderness

The trail coming out of Tunnel Station and towards Trail Pass is very sandy and can be really hot. There is water there initially, in the form of the Wild & Scenic River--South Fork Kern.

However, the trail eventually leaves the SF Kern and crosses parts of Mulkey Meadows. This area is basically one gigantic sand dune.

This is your reward for coming so far--a hot and dry and sandy crossing of Mulkey Meadows and then up to Trail Pass. This is the last tough stretch before reaching the pass and eventually your car.
