Start: Mojave River Forks Dam
End: Silverwood Lake
Miles covered: 15
PCT mile marker: 328/2652
Highlight: Beach, pizza, and beer at Silverwood Lake. (Yes, that’s one large pizza per person.)
Biggest challenge: Trash at Silverwood Lake. The spot we chose for a break turned out to have quite a bit of trash. (Or “rubbish” to my British readers.) I carry a large trash bag as back-up gear (poncho, ground sheet, etc), so we used is to haul out a load to the nearest trash can.
