Latopie Lake Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For a quick dash into the alpine world of the High Sierra, the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) out of Sonora Pass is hard to beat. From the 9,624-foot starting point, the trail climbs into a rare and exquisite land where tiny flowers bloom in profusion and the rocks are arranged with an artistic flare. Latopie Lake and its neighbor, Koening Lake, stand out like dazzling oases in this world of rock. The lakes are ideally located for spending a lazy couple of hours watching the clouds drift over the surrounding peaks."
