Trail Running and Backpacking in Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP's

Trail Running and Backpacking in Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP's

According to the park service, the Rae Lakes Loop is one of the most popular backpacks in Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, if not the entire Sierra. Typically backpacked in 4-5 days, the loop can be run and/or hiked in a single day. The loop is ~42 miles long and climbs from 5,035 ft at the trailhead to 11,978 ft at Glen Pass. The portion between Vidette Meadows and Woods Creek Crossing is along the John Muir Trail and passes through the Rae Lakes area, a chain of large alpine lakes over 10,500 feet with superlative views of rugged Sierra peaks. The trailhead is at Road’s End in magnificent Kings Canyon and travels along Bubbs Creek and Woods Creek, including passage through Vidette Meadows, Castle Domes, and Paradise Valley. Spectacular scenery unfolds around every corner.
