Madera Peak Day Hike, Ansel Adams Wilderness

This hike could take most of the day and it is fairly difficult but well-worth the trouble. I started at the Jackass trailhead on Beasore Road but you can also hike from Norris trail head. The trail disappears between Lower Jackass Lake and Upper Jackass Lake Lake so bring your topo.
The hike is somewhere around 10 miles round trip and there is significant elevation change. It passes several lakes so water is not a problem if you bring your filter. The elevation of Madera Peak is 10,509′.

Madera Peak is located in the Ansel Adams Wilderness of the Sierra National Forest near Bass Lake, CA.


Good luck on your hike! Tell us about your trip including best times, personal experiences, etc, by filling out the comments field, below.
