Highway 58 to Highway 242 Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In Section E, the PCT traverses three types of terrain. The first third of this section’s PCT traverses slopes deficient in both views and lakes. On the middle third, which starts at Irish Lake, the trail traverses flatter land that is still generally viewless but that is peppered with very enjoyable lakes (once the mosquito population dwindles). On the northern third, the trail skirts the Three Sisters, and views abound of glacier-draped peaks and spreading, sinister lava flows. Like Section C’s Sky Lakes Wilderness, this section’s Three Sisters Wilderness, which dominates most of the section, is flooded with weekend hikers. And for good reason—it is very scenic and readily accessible."
