Strenuous but incredible terrain. Good opportunities to scramble throughout and excellent swimming holes along the return trail. Recommend staying at Gem Lake.

Lovely lake and stunning views from burst rock along the way

Killer views only 1/2 mile or so in that just keep going as you hike along the ridge top. The lake was nice and serene, though a bit marshy around the edges. We reached the lake about noon and there were plenty of mosquitos about. Awesome mellow hike

Absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this to everyone!

Absolutely breathtaking!

Emigrant Wilderness is great, but at the moment (June 21st 2017) the road to Crabtree is closed at Aspen Meadows. Apparently due to fallen trees. Check the website or call the ranger stations to check ahead. I suppose one could hike in from Aspen Meadows to Crabtree. Overall, the trails are great, and nice to see what is basically upper upper Yosemite.

Beautiful. Breathtaking views. A lot of granite to camp around the lake. Worth the hike.

Great scenery, but the hike between Mud and Grouse lake is a sea of downed logs and flooded trail - in need of maintenance.
