Lake Virginia Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Spectacular high alpine terrain is the reward for venturing off the beaten path. This semi-loop takes you to Lake Virginia on the PCT/JMT via Ram Lake, a less frequently visited spot in a lofty granite basin dotted with sparkling lakes and serene meadows. If you’re a strong backpacker looking to explore off trail, this trip is a good place to start."
