  1. YE02 is 2 large boxes, at about 9300 feet, in the GPS route YOSEMITE EAST.

  2. Note: This over-used area has braided trails that could confuse anyone. There is more than one junction with the John Muir Trail but only one set of junction signs. The bear boxes among the buildings are for camp guests, backpackers should use the boxes southwest of the buildings.
