Bubbs Creek Bridge?
Bailey Bridge?
Rae Lakes (Rae Lakes lived up to all the expectations I had for it. I had heard a lot about it bc it?s a popular California loop. The entire hike up to Rae Lakes from the Baxter Creek Bridge is just beautiful. You kind of stumble upon these lakes, that are some of the prettiest lakes I?ve ever seen. Meander through fields of streams and then come up on Rae Lakes, which are surrounded by peaks. It?s an awesome place to swim, but it is definitely crowded, so beware. If you?re not into the crowds, stop before you get to Rae Lakes or go all the way to the end of the lakes. There are some secluded spots at the very end before you start up Glen Pass. https://thecampkit.com/best-campsites-on-the-jmt/)
Water (7/14 - 2 miles out from Roads End, Bubbs Creek is being diverted over the trail in between the Bailey and Bubbs Creek bridges- 15 feet in width with strong, white water and no viable log crossings. This water is between 2 to 4 feet deep. )
(7/14 - Charlotte Lake and surrounding areas are 20% covered in snow. Several Trees down below Vidette Meadow on JMT. Not stock passable. Center Basin and around Golden Bear Lake has 10% snow coverage.)
(7/12 - South side has a 35ft slippery steep snow scramble. North facing slope is still holding snow to Arrowhead Lake. Arrowhead Creek remains high and swift. Seek alternative crossing. 7/7 - The South side of Glen pass has 50% snow coverage with an exposed snow traverse. The North side of the pass is 100% covered in snow, all of the way to the bottom and for 2 1/2 miles. Arrowhead Creek is deep and swift- cross to the West, above the lake. Snowline is at dollar Lake. Baxter Creek is fast moving white water, knee to theigh deep. Trekking poles are highly recommended for creek crossings. )
(6/19 - The South Fork Bridge at Upper Paradise Valley is gone, hikers will not be able to cross the South Fork of the Kings River. With higher tempratures, the crossing is high and swift with no apparnt safe alternate route. Streams and rivers will continue to rise with the extream heat. )

Charlotte Creek (Some 13 miles later, arriving at Charlotte Creek in time to set-up camp and have an early dinner. Like most spots we camped in, there is one bear/ food locker here to share. And the closest water source is Bubbs creek, towards braving the forest of ferns close to camp, that are swarming with mosquitoes or back on the trail passing the camp site, is Charlotte creek that cuts across the trail.)
Vidette Meadow (Vidette Meadow is a fine option for camping, and your return journey from here will be a manageable 11.8 miles back to Roads End. However, we recommend continuing the next 2 miles to Junction Meadow.)
Junction Meadow (smaller meadow, but rich with numerous subtle highlights in its intimate setting)
Sphinx Junction (Your final spot for camping lies just past the Sphinx Creek bridge beneath a towering sugar pine. A handful of sites and a bear locker are present here.)
