This trip requires overnight permits from the Inyo National Forest Wilderness Office. This specific trail started at the Agnew Meadows Trailhead! There’s a first-come, first-serve campsite near the trailhead which costs some money so plan ahead if you wish to camp there before heading out.
For full trail data check out:
We definitely recommend the PCT route there and back, unless you want to stop to see the other lakes in the area. If so, take the PCT there and the JMT back for better elevation distribution.
