Nine Lakes Basin Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nine Lakes Basin offers seclusion that only cross-country destinations seem to possess. While hundreds tramp the High Sierra Trail, not more than a half mile away, and many throng to Little Five Lakes, through which this trip passes, few visit this wild basin, with its splendid lakes and majestic scenery."
