This hike is highly recommended. We did it in reverse, heading from Big Meadows to Weaver Lake night one as we got in late. This made day 2 from Weaver Lake to Jennie Lake via JO Pass a decent uphill trek. The back part of the trail is fairly rugged, but well worth the hike. There is plenty of water along the route which was a nice bonus not having to worry about where to fill up. Both lakes tend to be fairly busy camping wise, but are extremely beautiful and worth the effort.

Hiked in for the night out of big meadows. It turned out to be around 9 miles one way. The lake was absolutely beautiful! Crystal clear water. I would recommend this hike to anyone. Moderately difficult with a light pack, mainly because of distance.

Hiked this trail as part of a weekend hike from the entrance to the Jennie Lakes Wilderness to Mitchell Peak, and if you enjoy arduous hikes then you'll love this one. So scenic and challenging!

Gorgeous views. Remote. Awesome wildlife, tiny frogs, coyote packs yipping at 3 a.m. and a marmot family. Amazing sunsets. It doesn't get any better. A ton of up and down. Poop out pass is well named. Great hike. Will do it again.

It was An amazing hike ! Definitely wouldn't recommend it to someone who hasn't been backpacking before . Elevation is crazy, it's about 9000 feet I believe , but man the view is amazing ! Be careful, we did get lost at one point because you have to backtrack at one point in the trail to do the loop. Other then that , it was awesome !!

Going out there this weekend. Is there an basecamp ground along the 14S11 road ? or 14S16 ?
