Supplements to the Lake Tahoe to Mount Whitney Trail Guide. Pages posted by backpackers to supplement the Trail Guide's descriptions.
At the Carson Gap you decide upon continuing South on the Tahoe to Yosemite or the Pacific Crest Trails. The Pacific Crest Trail will take you from Carson Pass to Ebbetts Pass on Highway 4, while the Tahoe to Yosemite Trail connects the Carson Gap with Lake Alpine.
The trail guide index allows you to investigate and compare both routes through maps, mileages, and trail guide pages with pictures and videos.
This page is set up for backpackers to post comments and questions about the section of the Pacific Crest Trail between the Raymond Lake trail junction and Ebbetts Pass.
