Swamplake you most likely could, part of the Dusy would be a real chore, would take you a lot of strapping, winching and what not.
Time for some lockers for ya buddy

You are very welcome, Thursday was a hard day made us feel old lol.
Finished Swamplake trail, hunted for our trailers, then drug the whole shebang up too kaiserpass found ought we couldn't park at the trailhead
, fun lil road for trailers in parts the road. Was at the most 1 foot wider than the trailers, rock wall on one side couple a thousand feet drop on the other and steep. Turned around, backtracked a few miles found an area to park unloaded the Jeeps and started rocking. Nine miles of continues crawling and still made the campground before dark, man that day made me feel sore and old

Here is a lil recap of our trip
Met at my bud's house at 5 AM Wednesday morning, drove 300 miles to Shaverlake CA, then another 21 miles to the trailhead of Swamp lake. Drove 5-6 miles of dirtroad to the actual trail, then ran half the trail to Grouse lake got there at 3.30 PM
Setup up camp did a bit of fishing and hiking made dinner relaxed a lil for a change watched bats pick bugs of the water surface was way cool and turned in for the night.
Thursday was a hard day made us feel old lol.
Finished Swamplake trail, hunted for our trailers, then drug the whole shebang up too kaiserpass found out we couldn't park at the trailhead, fun lil road for trailers in parts the road. Was at the most 1 foot wider than the trailers, rock wall on one side couple a thousand feet drop on the other and steep. Turned around, backtracked a few miles found an area to park unloaded the Jeeps and started rocking. Nine miles of continues crawling and still made the campground before dark, man that day made me feel sore and old
Got there at 5.30PM Setup camp ate dinner relaxed watched the stars before hitting the sack.
Friday morning got up ate breakfast, packed up our junk, hit the trail, we kinda took it easy since both Jeeps were a bit low on gas.
Got to the trailers and made the fun drive back to civlization. Hit Clovis CA around 1.30PM ate lunch got gas and headed home which brought more fun. My bud's truck or trailer started vibrating real bad on the highway and took us quite awhile to figure out after screwing around and pulling off the road several times I found that one of his trailer tires had a tire casing failure. Once we had that changed we hit the road and made it home around 10.30 pm. Funny how I find this stuff relaxing

There are several other trails there worth exploring.
The Dusy is one of them it's one of all the trails there very scenic you can camp and fish at 4 different lakes. Has some nice rock crawling challenges in the last 9 miles of the trail

Here are a collection of pics we took 4 years ago when we did the whole Dusy Ershim trail
