I think we can all admit to going on runs that have little to do with running. The routes show up in our Strava feeds as a run, but a quick glance at the time and pace reveals that something very different went down…or up, or along a slow moving ridge.
Sierra Trail Runs | The Book
Sierra Trail Runs: A Guide to the Eastside will be available through Wolverine Publishing. The 400 page photo guide features year-round runs ranging from introductory trails to backcountry adventures in the High Sierra and includes trails in the rugged White Mountains and over into Death Valley. Order your copy.
The Sierra Trail Runs book covers an area across 150 miles of mountain range spanning -282 feet to 14,505 feet of elevation. A lot goes in that space. First time visitors to the Eastern Sierra have a lot of questions, Hopefully we hit on the information you’re after.
The Owens Valley has a climate of extremes. It’s hot in summer and cold in winter. Average highs at the peak of summer are near 100 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter daytime highs hover in the mid-5o’s and overnight temperatures dip into the low 20’s and colder.
The runs in the Sierra Trail Runs guidebook are all accessible from the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. These routes span from South to North, between Lone Pine and Bridgeport along Highway 395, and further east to the White Mountains and Death Valley.
