Rae Lakes Loop (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide

"Without a doubt, the Rae Lakes Loop is one of the most popular backcountry trips in Sequoia and Kings Canyon. For those who don’t mind the company, the area offers some classic High Sierra scenery featuring crystalline, subalpine lakes that reflect an array of glacier-sculpted domes and jagged peaks. Beginning in the majestic setting of Kings Canyon, the route visits two major Sierra creeks (Woods and Bubbs), a significant waterfall (Mist Falls), and two beautiful meadows (Castle Domes and Lower Vidette). It also crosses a major Sierra pass (Glen Pass)."
