Description

This trail connects the Florida Canyon Trail #145 to the summit of Mt. Wrightson via a backcountry trail which is less used than it's neighboring trails starting from Madera Canyon. You'll have no shortage of views in the oxygen deprived ascent. You can see well into Mexico most days and a number of neighboring peaks are easy to pick out.

The easiest access to the Crest Trail is via the Florida Canyon Trail #145
