This is a Half Camp where hikers usually spend the night when they hike Mt Whitney in several days.

The actual name of this spot is "Trail Camp" and that's "Trail Camp lake" in the picture, just to correct the information on this page. It's at the base of the "Hundred switchbacks" (actually, 97) and is at 12,000 feet. We spent a night here after summiting Whitney up from Trail Crest. This is on the Lone Pine Trail and the trail on the west side of the Whitney Ridge below Trail Crest (13,777)is on the John Muir trail. We slept the night before at Crabtree meadows at 10,000 feet. Now you have all the place names. From Trail Camp we completed the loop by ending at Whitney Portal at 8300. 5 days earlier we were south and going up the Pacific Crest Trail.
