The San Joaquin River Trail, affectionately called the SJRT, is a long-distance hiking trail spanning from Millerton Lake to Devil's Postpile in California. The SJRT follows the mighty San Joaquin River from the valley floor up to the headwaters in the High Sierra. When complete, this 150 mile trail will connect Highway 99 to the Pacific Crest Trail near Devil's Postpile in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range by Mammoth, California. This unique combination of existing and new trails links together a route that will showcase the beauty of the central valley while trekking through the gateway to the sierras.

      A few down trees and some heavy erosion near the Big Sandy bridge from the recent storm. Other than that, everything is green and the dirt is perfect.

      Conditions are ideal right now. Flowers are in full bloom, temperatures are cool but not cold, and the dirt is tacky.
