My g/f and I just got back from a 3 night camping trip in the golden trout wilderness located in the southern sierra mountains in California - monache meadows. its pretty far back in the wilderness, about 14 miles from a road and even there is in the middle of nowhere. the trail is the monache jeep trail, its rated easy and i drove most of it in 2 wheel drive. you do need 4 wheel drive to get back here, its not really doable in 2 wheel drive cars. you end up at the south fork of the kern river, full of trout, we caught lots. the trail takes you though the mountains into a meadow where the river flows through, then you cross the river and there are camp spots along the river in the forest. the temps during the day were 80 degrees, but at night i think it was high 30s!! nice!! this is primitive camping, with no facilities or water, pack it in and pack it out. there were only a few other campers there, it was so nice and quiet back there in the middle of nowhere. your pretty much on your own out there so you have to plan accordingly.
out tent was right on the river

fish we caught behind out tent
typical conditions of the trail, not that hard
there is one fun obstacle but i had the cargo hitch on the back so didn't get to play on it, went around
man made dam about a 1/2 mile up from camp to keep the brown trout out of the river below
