Nine Lakes Basin is located on the High Sierra Trail in Sequoia National Park. Prepare for scenic views and that "high sierra feeling" when on this trip to Nine Lakes Basin. Cross country travel the last 0.5 mile to the lower lake is required. An easy to follow trail, but demanding once you cross the bridge past Bearpaw Meadow. A long steady uphill climb to Kaweah Gap. If you want to "take it easy" then it is recommended to stay one night at Bearpaw, start early the next day, and hike uphill when it is cool towards Nine Lake Basin.
