Tuttle Creek Trail
The Tuttle Creek Trail leads to an abandoned stone building known as "The Tuttle Creek Ashram" located at an altitude of 7,600 between two forks of Tuttle Creek in the John Muir Wilderness. Beyond the first mile, the trail becomes a faint unmaintained route in this glacier carved canyon.
Plan on hiking an extra mile walking on the washed out road.
