Trail shared by Aaron Groves

A short and scenic run to Weaver Lake via the Fox Meadow Trailhead.

Aaron Groves

Features Lake · River/Creek · Swimming · Views

Campfire permit and parking pass required.

Overview

This is an alternate entry point into the Jennie Lakes Wilderness leading to both Weaver and Jennie Lakes instead of the more popular Big Meadows Trailhead. The Fox Meadow Trailhead entry shaves about 1.5 miles off from a Big Meadow entrance.

Need to Know

Vehicles parked at the trailhead will need a NPS pass from SEKI (Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks).

Description

This is an alternate route to Weaver Lake via the Fox Meadow Trailhead. The route is a gradual 2.5-mile climb that starts at Fox Meadow and terminates at Weaver Lake. Weaver Lake offers fifteen campsites with fire rings along the west side of the lake.

Weaver Lake gets quite a bit of traffic on the weekends, but runners who arrive before noon on Saturdays shouldn't have any trouble finding a spot to camp. Overnight campers must possess a campfire permit. Backcountry permits and bear canisters are not required for this run.
