Girard Trail, California

   
There are two trailheads to chose from, one in each end which means you have the option of backcountry hiking it one way if you have someone to pick you up at the other end. Girard Trail goes through some very different elevations, so keep in mind that you may need to dress differently at different elevations. The total elevation difference for this backpacking and hiking trail is 3,407 feet, and that is higher than average. At parts of the year this vicinity sees very little rain, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out. You should count on this backcountry walk taking about 9 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. Being 10.2 miles long; it's longer than many backcountry trails. This is a long hiking trail, so do pack enough food to last the whole trip.
