John Muir Trail: Middle Rae Lake

Fresno County, California

Description

Added by Kristen Bor

This campsite is located at mile 172 of the John Muir Trail.

You'll have to deal with some crowds at Rae Lakes but that is because this is an amazing setting to spend the night. If sharing this place with others is the worst of your worries then you're doing pretty well. Hikers flock here for the incredible swimming, views of iconic peaks like Fin Dome and Painted Lady, and epic sunrises.

Find out everything you need to know about your John Muir Trip at Bearfoot Theory.
