If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!
Quoting the Inyo NF web site, the rule is "If you exit the wilderness for more than 24 hours or if you exit and then re-enter the wilderness at a different trailhead it is considered a separate trip and a new permit would be required." So it would be OK to spend the night outside the wilderness as long as you go wilderness boundary to boundary in less than 24 hours, and you don't exit one trailhead and enter a different one - nothing there about "overnight".
