Trailhead Parking: Free
The trailhead is located at Crawford Depot/AMC Highland Center. The typical route for Field and Tom is going up Mt. Willey. We decided to just do a smaller loop.
The Avalon Trial starts off very easy.
The river crossing right before you start gaining elevation.
After 1.4 mi you reach the intersection. From this, we continued on Avalon Trail. It was STEEP!
View from Mt. Avalon
Continuing to Mt. Field
Only view on Field. Looking at the Mt. Washington Hotel
It was SOOOOO buggy up at the top. We wanted to have lunch there but decided to eat on the go.
Off to Mt. Tom.
On our way back down to the car we decided to take a small detour to look at a couple cascades at the last 1.4 miles.
