Backpacking Across Emigrant Wilderness: The Plan with Maps, Miles, Elevations

Backpacking the route of the Tahoe to Yosemite Trail across Emigrant Wilderness reveals a whole range of possible backpacking trips and loops around the high elevation portions of the Emigrant Wilderness. Our position adjacent to the Toiyabe National Forest, Yosemite, and the Hoover Wilderness are also carefully noted.

These maps below covering the East and West Flanks of the Sierra from Highway 108 to the Yosemite boundary reveals a trail along the Sierra Crest where the TYT and PCT track across the Western and Eastern Flanks. This length of crestline trail links the TYT on the Western Flank with the PCT along Eastern Flank through a series of trail junctions that open up a wide range of hiking options you should know about.

 All of the information for this section of the TYT & PCT along the Sierra Crest is listed in the
