Section I of the Pacific Crest Trail runs 76.4 miles from Highway 120 in Tuolumne Meadows to Highway 108 at Sonora Pass. This section is very steep with plenty of ups and downs, crossing mountain pass after mountain past. Most of the passes are below tree line, however, and the valleys can be very warm and enjoyable.
Along the way the trail passes Soda Springs, Delaney Creek, Tuolemne River, Conness Creek, Cold Canyon Creek, Miller Lake, Wilson Creek, Benson Pass, Smedberg Lake, Rogers Lake, Murdock Lake, Seavey Pass, Kerrick Canyon, Stubblefield Canyon Creek, Macomb Ridge Pass, Wilmer Lake, Tilden Lake, Grace Meadow, Dorothy Lake Pass, Lake Harriet, West Fork West Walker River, Kennedy Canyon Creek, and the Sierra Crest.
Trail length: 76 miles
