Pacific Crest Trail Map

Section L2 trailhead

Aborted hike on the south section of L2

Aborted attempt of section L2 north towards Jackson Meadow Reservoir

After planning and finding a loop hike along section L2 of the PCT (Meadow Lake Road 19N11 to FR7 near Jackson Meadow Reservoir) we were really looking forward to hitting the trail Sunday May 27th.

The drive up FR7 up to 19N11 was dry and problem free. Heading up Meadow Lake Road (19N11) was dry for the first 4 miles or so. We started hitting snow drifts on the road at about mile 4.5 and at mile 5 the road was no longer drivable at elevation 7000. We decided to hike up to the trail head to check out the conditions. One and a half miles later we were very discouraged to find the trail under several feet of snow. Both L2 north and L1 south were covered. We knew the first couple of miles up to Lacey Peak (8214) are forest covered and looking at the condition of the trail at 7800 feet we decided this was not the day to attempt a 16 mile loop.
