Fantastic backpacking hike starting at the Fernandez trailhead. Head north by northwest to Chittenden Lake near Sing Peak. Loop east back down the trail by Vandenburg Lake for another great spot on your decline.

Awesome!!!! Well worth the hike. Solid ground is a rare commodity if you are backpacking and looked to camp overnight. So the Early bird gets the worm. The trail is poorly marked and it's easy to get off track and end up at Lake Shirley. Just remember to stay to the left once you start the climb up from where the trail splits from the Lillian Trail Loop. Look for the markers on the left...
