Dry Lakes Trail, California

   
The total elevation difference for this backcountry trail is 879 feet, and that is lower than average. Now this wilderness hiking trail is pretty long, so do pack enough food to last the whole trip. There are two trailheads to chose from, one in each end which means you have the option of backpacking it one way if you have someone to pick you up at the other end. With its 8.6 miles of walking distance it's a mid length backcountry hike. At parts of the year this vicinity sees very little rain, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire. You should count on this backcountry trek taking about 7.5 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. Dry Lakes Trail stays roughly within the same elevation zone the whole time, so you won’t have to worry about different climate zones along your backcountry hike.
