Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2007: Henry Coe State Park Mountain-Bike Camping / Day 5: A short day hike from Jackrabbit Lake to Paradise Lake and back. 27

Another great day of solitude, but very hot again, so I take it easy. I settle on a short (six-mile round trip) walk to Paradise Lake and back.

I was hoping to do a longer hike today through the Orestimba Wilderness well beyond Paradise Lake, but the combination of getting up late, having water-filter problems and the hot weather made me reconsider.
