Supplemental Trail Guide Information
Supplements to the Lake Tahoe to Mount Whitney Trail Guide. Information posted by backpackers to supplement the Trail Guide's descriptions.
The TahoetoWhitney.com trail guide and this forum cover the Tahoe to Yosemite and Pacific Crest Trail routes across Desolation.
This forum allows you to post comments, questions, and your experiences to compliment and expand the scope of the trail guide.
But there is much more to the Desolation Wilderness than the main TYT and PCT route which runs the length of the Desolation Wilderness.
This forum is also for information about those backpacking trails and trips through Desolation Wilderness not covered by the Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Forum.
Highland Lakes is a nice place where I take a break or spend a night as I hike by linking up my Southbound Tahoe to Yosemite trail with the Pacific Crest Trail via Highland Lakes.
Highland Lakes is also an excellent place to begin or end hiking trips, as it's well maintained dirt road brings us to the Highland Lakes and Gardner Meadow Trailheads.

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.

Southbound backpackers have the option of continuing South, over Big Sam into the Emigrant Basin. For backpackers continuing South to Tuolumne Meadows, you will cross the Emigrant Basin to enter Yosemite through Bond Pass, below which you will rejoin the Pacific Crest Trail in Jack Main Canyon. Let's check out the maps and trail guide.
