I hiked starting in the campground at twin lakes up to barney and then continued on to peeler lake, we did it as a day hike, and let me tell you that doing it in a day is super tough. but the views and the sense of accomplishment are well worth it if you are in the area its a great hike
This is a hike we used for client trips at Leave No Trace Adventures. For beginning hikers we opted for staying just at the end of Barney Lake on first night although a short distance, seemed to make it much more enjoyable for the clients. The switch backs that begin shortly after Barney Lake on the way to Crown or Peeler Lakes can be difficult for first time backpackers. We then move off to the right towards Peeler Lake and stay one or two days, depending if anyone wants to bag a peak. We then head back to Crown Lake for a night and another nice set of switches await you to the hike to 20 Mule Pass if you wish, but without packs. Great scenery, fishing, and the view atop the peaks at Peeler Lake are incredible.
