 Administratively

Camp Irene on the North Fork of the Mokelumne River marks the boundary between the El Dorado and Stanislaus National Forests. We are heading South across the river into the Stanislaus National Forest. This river crossing also marks our reentry onto maintained trails.

Congratulations. The Southbound Backpacker just completed the hardest part of the Tahoe to Yosemite Trail, the 9.52 mile section from the junction in Summit City Creek with the trail up to Fourth of July Lake to our current position at Camp Irene.
 

We remain within the Mokelumne Wilderness continuing South, up to the top of Mount Reba. Mount Reba's peak and adjacent crest line marks part of the Mokelumne Wilderness' convoluted boundaries following the crest line through this bit of the Western flank of the Sierras. At the top of Mount Reba we pass out of the Mokelumne Wilderness.

Here's a few basic facts about this segment of the Tahoe to Yosemite Trail:

The Big Climb up Mount Reba
Summit City Creek, and the Mountains bounding Highway 88 in the far distance, from the Northern Flank of Mount Reba.

Summit City Creek cutting deeply up into the Mountains bounding Highway 88 in the far distance. This view is looking North, from the Northwestern Flank of Mount Reba.


Elevations

Elevation: Camp Irene, 5280 feet.

Elevation: Mount Reba, 8729 feet.

Elevation Change: 3440 feet 

Miles

Mileage: 5.24 miles from Camp Irene South to the top of Mount Reba. All up. 

Mileage: 2.78 miles from the Top of Mount Reba South, to Bee Gulch trail head on Highway 4. All down.

8.02 miles total from Camp Irene to Highway 4 at the Bee Gulch trail head.

Mileage and Elevations

Terrain

Light forest mixed with moderate to heavy brush filling in the the granitic terrain provides little cover from the Sun, nor protection from the heat, as you traverse up the mostly manzanita covered mountain Northwest flanks. The hike up is a sustained strenuous steep climb, and the exposure and heat will intensify the difficulty during hot afternoons.
