Rae Lakes Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Many consider the Rae Lakes Loop the quintessential High Sierra trek. Certainly the route is among the most popular. Thousands of backpackers flock to the area every summer, routinely filling the daily quota for wilderness permits. The Rae Lakes area is blessed with subalpine scenery as fine as any in the Sierra, with crystalline lakes reflecting an array of glacier-sculpted domes and jagged peaks. Jaunts into the mountain splendor of the neighboring Sixty Lakes Basin offer more chances for discovering serenity away from the main trail."
