Camping & Permit at Mt.Langley

by ashbal » Fri Aug 05, 2011 6:19 pm

Hi

I plan to day hike Mt.Langley from Cottonwood lakes trailhead sometime next month. If I were to camp the previous night in the trail head camp site (I am assuming there are camp sites there), do I need permit ? I heard that for day hiking , I dont need a permit. Is that correct ? I dont plan to camp on the trail going up the mountain. If I need to get a permit for camping, where can I get it ?

thanks

No permit necessary for day hiking Langley. Keep it on the DL and snooze in your car @ the TH. Or get a camp spot @ Horseshoe Meadows. If you do plan to overnight in the wilderness, get your permit at the Eastern Sierra InterAgency Visitor Center in Lone Pine.

You can also crash the night before in the Alabama Hills just outside of Lone Pine.

>> camp spot @ Horseshoe Meadows.
Do I need permit for this or just show up at Horseshoe meadows, park my car, put my tent in the camp site and sleep through the night ?

Nope!

If there is a spot available, you just pay the site fee and have at it.

Can I reserve it and if yes, can you tell me the number to call ?

Its first come first serve with no reservations. Its limited to one night only and the cost used to be around $6.00.

Its meant to be more a staging area for access to the many trailheads more than a campground. Don't leave food in the car, Its bear country.
