This month Tuolumne County Trailhead’s outing follows the Emigrant Trail along the shores of Lake Alpine (7,350’). This route is appealing to all hikers – it’s easy along the lakeshore; it becomes moderate on the approach to Inspiration Point; getting to the lookout is difficult. Stop where you need to and rejoin the party on the way back. Inspiration Point is a lava bluff with a wide variety of wildlife habitat and vegetation and incredible views of the Dardanelles and other features of the Stanislaus National Forest. On-leash dogs welcome. Bring water, trail snacks/lunch. To RSVP and receive meet-up instructions, go to the “Contact Us” page at Refer to TCT in the subject line. The Tuolumne County Trailhead program airs on KAAD-LP 103.5 FM (Sonora’s community radio station) on second and fourth Sundays at 12:30pm; hikes are monthly on first Saturdays.
