Chalone Peak Trail, California

   
(...) Chalone Peak Trail leads from Bear Gulch reservoir (close to Bear Gulch picnic area) to Chalone peaks (first North Peak, then South Peak). Neither peak is accessible by an automobile, which means that nobody can ''pick you up'' there, unless they do it in a helicopter. In reality Chalone Peak trail has only one accessible trailhead, which means that it has to be trekked both ways in any case. Says Andrey

This wilderness hiking trail has a total elevation difference of 1,720 feet, and that is about average. There are two trailheads to chose from, one in each end which means you have the option of backcountry trekking it one way if you have someone to pick you up at the other end. This wilderness hiking trail sometimes gets very dry, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire. Chalone Peak Trail is 5.4 miles long it's an average length backcountry hiking trail. Even though this is not a very long wilderness hiking trail it's always perfect to bring some emergency supplies, you never know what could happen. This backcountry trek shouldn't take more than 4.5 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. This backcountry hiking trail goes through some very different elevations which of course means you need to be prepared for different conditions on different parts of the backcountry hiking trail.
