The 13-mile loop begins in the Basin, a mountain valley walled in by reddish-brown igneous rock. While you can hike in either direction, the Laguna Meadow Trail climbs less steeply on the outbound leg. Don't pitch your tent right on the rim, especially if its windy. On the return, descend the Boot Canyon and Pinnacles Trails. Plan on at least two days.
