I'm planning a trip to Kings Canyon in early Sept and would appreciate any advice offered.
This first night I will be staying in Lodgepole Campground.
After that I'm looking to do about 30-40 miles and ending back at Lodgepole (or anywhere the shuttle services will take me back to Lodgepole).
1. Does anyone have any recommended trails (or highlights/must see) that are suitable for hanging?
2. Twin Lakes trail seems to offer a lot of opportunities for a lollipop - anyone done it?
3. Is food hanging good enough or should I carry a bear can as they seem to very strongly recommend?
4. I'm from relatively flat land and a much lower altitude. How much impact does this typically play in daily distance?
Again, this will be my first time out to CA and into any kind of actual mountains so any help would be appreciated!
