Deer Cove Trail to Grizzly Lakes is a 16.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Dunlap, CA that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running, and backpacking and is accessible from June until October.
Didn't go all the way to Grizzley Lakes. I turned back at the junction near Frypan Meadow. The smoke from the Rough Fire was pretty bad in the morning, but cleared up as I gained elevation. Will definitely hike this one again & camp at Grizzley lakes & then head up to Mt Harrington & over the Monarch Divide. Nice views & very peaceful......I didn't see another person the entire day.
