Rae Lakes Hike and camping

Absolutely stunning trail. This place is located in Kings Canyon near Sequoia, CA. The great thing about this trail is that it is less crowded, inexpensive, less frequently visited and remains in pristine condition. The trail is considered "strenuous" and is, indeed, moderately difficult in several places - especially with 60L+ packs. You can easily trek in both a clockwise (most popular and slightly easier) and counter-clockwise direction. I would suggest that the trip is ideal for a 2-3 person group where pack load sharing can ease the load for all. Except for a few places, hikers are never more than 10 minutes from a filtration water source that lessens the pack load of carrying water. The trail is well marked and impossible to not clearly see at all times. Permits are required for all overnight wilderness trips in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
