The folks here were so nice in helping us book our backpack into desolation wilderness. You can borrow bear barrels for free. Good selection of local back country maps and nice little forest gift area.

Depends on how much snow is left. The paved trails are not plowed. The visitors center will probably not be open until Memorial Day.
