Milestone Basin Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Visit some of the most beautiful and sought-after alpine cirques and lakes in the southern Sierra on this multiday adventure that includes famed Milestone Basin. There's no easy way to reach any of these destinations, so that even if the busy PCT/JMT passes nearby, you'll find relative solitude while exploring them."
