Total distance: 8.7 miles
To start the summer off, I drove to the high country of Yosemite National Park for a solo day hike. I learned of Spillway Lake by reading someone else’s hiking notes on-line. Armed with a map and memory of the notes, I headed out to the lake. The trailhead was at an elevation of 9700 feet and continued to gently incline by 800 feet.
