Notes: The Grandview Campground site located past the "new" Group Camp Ferguson site which we have tried out a couple times but which also requires reservations in advance.  Therefore, we when we say Grandview, we might mean the campground proper or the group camp.  The Grandview campground is approximately 8,500 feet while Ferguson is 5 miles down the road at approximately 7,800 feet above sea level. The oxygen level is less than good 'ol San Bernardino valley. You may need to reduce your activities due to the thin air. There is no running water at the Grandview campground or Ferguson campsite but there are camp vault toilets; plan appropriately. Remember to dress warmly, as the mountain nights can be quite cold. Be sure to bring plenty of drinks and snacks for yourself.  There is a nice picnic area and the club usually plans on providing two group meals.  Bring appropriate sleeping gear and supplies for staying over a couple nights. During the day, you can visit the ancient Bristlecone forest which is up the road from Grandview. There are two nature trails that you can take. One is approximately 1 miles and the other, more challenging one, is 4 miles and takes you to the Methuselah tree. Remember, that you are at 10,000 feet!
