This is a great trail, with beautiful lakes and a meadow. the road in was in good condition. the trail is very nice. the trail is about 3 miles to pine creek basin, it will take about 90 min if you are semi-athletic. The trail does get steep near the basin. You can continue up to lake Patterson which will add about 1.4 miles (one way) to your trek and 2000 feet of elevation gain Great fishing, caught 7 fish the first day. I would rate the trail as easy to moderate, but if you continue to Patterson it will be hard. Also there is potential for snow in July so pack accordingly. (see pics, the snow and tent pic is July 10, 2016)

Wonderful trail. Very diverse terrain ranging from dry rocky ground to thick pine trees. Spectacular views of Alturas as well as views into Surprise Valley area and Nevada. Campgrounds for both people and horses at Pepperdine (the Trail head)

Did this hike in June with my trusty companion Schubert. The Weather was perfect. The bugs weren't too bad, and the views at the end are great. All in all a great experience.
