I've been taking this trail for many years. I return again and again as it is a great trail for the first time backpacker or folks who just want to get there and relax! The scenery is typical Sierra, high peaks to climb, quiet meadows and beautiful lakes! The fishing is usually good as well.

Great trail and great views! Couple bumper busters, 3.5" lift with 35's on a Jeep Rubicon did just fine on this trail.

First hike with my son and pups. Went really well....my 3 year old walked the whole way.

Decent trail. Easy to get off the trail and lose your way just a bit. The river was beautiful and was a nice reward after dealing with tons of gnats! My advice is bring plenty of bug spray. The only downer of this trail was the litter that people drop at the parking area and the trail itself. Other than that it was a fun hike.

I gave this 5 stars because, even though we didn't actually make it to the trailhead due to a tremendous amount of snow, we had an absolutely epic 18+ mile trip trying! Rock Creek Road was gated, so we figured we would just hike the whole damn thing back to the trail. It felt like it was uphill in the snow both ways. Camped at some truly wild spots, had some amazing campfires, a ton of laughs... and a fair share of suffering too. Nothing like spending most of your time surviving to help you out with some gratitude for the things you do have in your daily life. Can't wait for them to clear the road and get a little snow melt so we can actually get back there and fish those lakes.

As of Memorial Day weekend, if you want to get back to the trailhead and visit the lakes, bring snowshoes and be prepared to get your hike on.
