Check out the Miles and Elevations Index Page on the Trail Guide for the figures for each section of the trails.

 

As I continue to progress on the construction of the Trail Guide, this forum section will be completed.

See video

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.

Looking South down at the Kennedy Canyon trail junction from the Southern Flank of Levitt Peak. 

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.
