Evolution Valley Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Three exquisite High Sierran passes, fields of alpine flowers that are more like gardens than meadows, crystalline lakes, glacier-scoured canyons, dancing creeks, lofty peaks that cleave the sky well over the 13,000-foot mark, and ideal mountain weather make the semiloop hike of the Evolution Valley from North Lake to South Lake one of the best extended treks found anywhere."
