Really satisfied with this hike, it totally exceeded my expectations. I got to the trailhead at 9am, which was perfect because I had it to myself until the hike out. Highly recommend this to anyone, it was a pretty short hike with amazing views.

Amazing. Totally recharged my internal battery

Easy hike but unbelievable scenery and views. Well worth the trip up the mountain!

This is one of my annual hikes, I absolutely love this hike. You can make it as long or short as you like; although not huge elevation gains it is the highest improved hiking trail in California starting around 10,250' and makes the hike slightly more difficult. The drive to the starting point is an amazing place to see fall colors in early to mid October.

A must see if you're in the area! The dirt road back to the trailhead is a little rough but a fun drive if you have the right car.

Good hike, lots of traffic. Watch out for the two hippy guys that look like women, they will tell you the rest of the trail is flat, you just finished all of the uphill parts. Hah the whole thing is uphill.

It's a very pretty high altitude hike. The parking lot fills up fast so get here as early as possible.

It's a very pretty high altitude trail. I used this trail to help me get ready for my successful climb of Mount Whitney.

If you hike this trail you will continue to daydream about it til the day you die. Awesome!!!

First part of this trail is fairly difficult but then levels off and has beautiful views of creeks, wild flowers, and lakes.

Love this trail. We visited this lake mid September. It was Zen-Sational..! Felt like we were there All alone, pure Bliss. Just a few people fishing. The scent of nature never smelled so good! Strongly recommend this trail, it was easy and very soothing.
