Day trips in the Sierra will inspire a new generation of explorers, adventure seekers, we hope to encourage families and individuals to stop and take a look around as they travel through the Sierra. What do we consider day trip adventure? A day trip adventure is any adventure where in one tank of gas you can leave your home or beginning location in the morning, get out hike, explore, ski, walk climb, ride etc… and be home in your own bed that evening. Often a day trip will include where to eat, things to explore, ideas for enhancing your visit etc… Local hot spots, or local secrets will be shared when possible. Example of day trips in the Sierra: PCT Day Trip Hikes in the Central Sierra Hiking to Winnemucca Lake in Alpine County Day trip to Sunrise Lakes in Yosemite National Park Top Color Spots in Fall in the Sierra The Following are Day trip reviews from our staff and readers exploring the Sierra one day at a time!:
Let’s face it, we would all love to unplug for a week or two and just play in the Sierra. Explore like no one has ever gone before you, and find our way through the mysteries of the wilderness. However, we typically don’t have time in our busy lives to stop the clock and unplug like that. So Sierra REC, is dedicated to sharing with you the various day trip adventures that can be found in your region of the Sierra.
