This is a pretty tough hike, but well worth the effort. It crosses two passes and takes you deep into the wilderness near Mount Whitney.

 
Timberline Lake with Mount Whitney in the Background Featured Trail Journal
We believe that the best way up Mount Whitney is from the West. Of course, this means taking the scenic route and it will take you a couple extra days. However, it also means spending more time in the wilderness, more time to acclimate, and less time spent in the overcrowded Disneyland environment of the main Whitney Trail.

 
Towards Cockscomb Crest Featured Picture Gallery
Elizabeth Lake is a short hike above Tuolumne Meadows. This is a nice place to relax and during the off season before the roads close you can have it all to yourself.
