Enjoyed our hike on this trail. As others have said the trail has a lot of deadfall on it so you have really pay attention to the map. And yes, the bugs are for real.

Pay attention at the beginning to start your trail. We accidentally went up to the Falls Look Out (more uphill, gorgeous landscape view and falls were quite far away from where the trail ends). To see the falls, walk around the boulder in front of you when you end the trail and look down/off to the right.

Absolutely breathtaking! Right before the lake, the trail disappeared for a bit so you’ll have to use your best judgement! It is also muddy during this part, so wear waterproof shoes! Other than that, highly recommended!!

A nice hike with the family. The wildflowers along the trail were gorgeous. Hike early to beat the heat. Happy hiking!

This is so beautiful! A lot of the reviews don’t reflect the peace and tranquillity and loveliness of this hike. It’s easy, dog-friendly ( on leash ) and the sound of the water is so soothing. Park by the street - the start of the trail is obvious. We encountered wild turkeys, squirrels, a few runners, walkers and doggies. The private property gate is ok to pass through!

Very easy hike to craters, we went to both craters but did not complete the loop as there is lots of loose rock around the larger crater and there is a pretty good drop off in some parts which is not my thing. Had fun driving in on the dirt roads in our jeep!

is going to be open or close this Sat

Great little hike, haven’t been there in several years. Forgot how beautiful it is. I was unsure about going all the way down to the lake, I was happy on top of the ridge looking out at the granite, but I found a painted rock along the trail and somehow that convinced me to keep going. I put the rock in my pack, but I promise to find it a new home when I go backpacking deeper in the Emigrant Wilderness next week.

Worth the climb. Bring plenty of water a hat for protection because there is little shade. Not too crowded on a Thursday afternoon and recommend turning right after the second bridge (wooden one) as it's a much easier on joints than the left steep stone stairs.

Really unusual trail for Sierras with cows on pasture; you can hear cowbells as you’re in the lake basin. Download the map for offline use as there is no cell coverage in the basin and the trail past the cow pasture on the South and East side of the lake has lots of blowdown trees; you will have to improvise and do some pathfinding. Without the map and real-time position it would have been sketchy. Bugs, so bring spray. Still, really enjoyed it.

Short but energetic climb up to some great 360 degree views. Couple of sections in the upper part of trail going to the flat top I found mountain are not obvious, best route was just to the right of the recorded track.

I hope you like mosquitoes and because because they ate everywhere. The trail itself is pretty easy to follow. Even slathered in deet didn't repel them.

the loop.is REALLY hard to follow if u go left at the loop. (toward Rock.lake) Really hard, downed huge trees, cairns helped but it was pretty scary a few times. Just go right. to Duck lake with the little cabin and come back. Without Alltrails we'd still be wandering around the fallen trees.

The hike all the way into Wheeler Lake is a nice day hike. The destination is worth it and so are the views at the top of the ridge. Trail is lost under the snow at the ridge, so you have to climb up and over it to get over to the Mokeulumne side. The trail down front the ridge was a little washed out and we lost it sometimes. The trail closer to the lake while is borders the creek essentially has its own creek running through it. This didn’t take away from our experience at all. The climb back out from the lake a is a butt kicker. It’s a very enjoyable hike!
