    Joseph David reviewed Lockwood Creek Trail

    The trail mapped here is not the Lockwood Creek Trail, but rather, it is the West Frazier Mine trail. It eventually connects to the Lockwood Creek Trail, but not as it is shown on the trail map.
    The trail shown is the old route for the West Frazier Mine Road. Most of the portion from Lockwood Valley Road to the first intersection (about 1.5 miles in) is now closed to vehicles, as they access this road from the Frazier Mountain Road instead. A left turn at the intersection would take you back to the beginning of the vehicle route. Continuing straight at the intersection takes you up the west side of Frazier Mountain where the West Frazier Tie Road veers to the left, taking you to the summit of Frazier Mountain. Continuing straight at this point will take you into Lockwood Valley and connect with the Lockwood Creek Trail.
    Most of this route is a rocky four-wheel-drive trail, with several stretches where there is little to no shade. The climb is moderate, but manageable.
    I've been over this road on a motorcycle and in a truck, and have also hiked a portion of it. The scenery is pleasant, though not what I would consider exceptional, so I prefer to drive over this route as opposed to hiking it. There are other places nearby that I prefer to hike instead.

    Joseph David reviewed Nine Lakes Basin Loop Trail

    7 months ago

    I hiked this loop, or at least most of it, back in about 1980. It was my first week-long, moderate-distance backpacking trip. I was about 13 at the time. What I remember most is sleeping on a granite slab at Hamilton Lakes, the long climb the next day (through the tunnel), the spectacular view from Kaweah Gap, and water slides in Big Arroyo. It was a lot of work to get through that week, but well worth it.

    I hiked most of this trail in the summer of 2016 and found it to be a peaceful and leisurely walk most of the way. It was generally shady as we followed the stream, and there were wild raspberries along much of the trail. Quite a treat. It did get a bit warm when we had no shade, but that was only a small part of our hike.
    I must have turned around before reaching the difficult part because I thought the hike was almost entirely easy.
