I am planning a trip out from the East Coast and looking at wheeling the trail starting the day after labor day, Tuesday. What is the typical traffic that week?

Any weeks in August good as far as traffic or is it always busy during the summer. I have searched and looked at the calendar for past years. looks like it varies?

Thanks in advance

There is also the TLCA event: Rubithon. But that is usually in June/July but snow has pushed it back to August like this year.

The first few weeks in September are stellar, for weather and much less of a crowd. You will have a great time, even if you overlap a weekend. It's nothing like July/August.

The Rubithon was our first thought, this will be a Toyota trip. We are worried about crowds and the fact that we can not nail down a date till later in the year due to weather/snowpack. With a trip later in the year we can plan for it get vacation time etc. We have about a 2700 mile haul to get the rigs out and then back so we need to plan for the extra time/drive.

Concerns are how cold it may get and having a fire band. It looks like this happens some times.

Thanks for the feedback.

I think that this year was the third time they've had to change the date due to snow. When I went in 97 was another. I can't recall the third but they really don't change it at the first hint of snow.

I've gone that week numerous times. During the week after Labor Day you'll see others on the trail, but very few.

By that time of summer campfires are almost always banned. That's ok though as with no fire you'll really be able to see the stars and the Milky Way. It's impressive.

Yes, it will get cold at night but there will be very little chance of rain. Be prepared for nights in the low 40's or even down into the 30's.

I love September in the Sierra's.

Not sure about camping in the cold without a fire...I am sure it will be nice. I will have to look up fire ban regulations concerning cook stoves etc.

Thanks

It’s a propane appliance and falls under the same rules as a stove, with a permit.
Yadda yadda...:flipoff2:

I'm just interested in that "one guy " with an attitude...
Here's your ticket Sir!

Last time I read the reg., Has been awhile but the appliance in question emits an "open flame" type of heat that's why I question it.
The least amount of ammo we give the greenies the better!
