Beautiful day hike into the Hoover Wilderness featuring 5 lakes (Big Valley, Cooney, Blue and Frog lakes) as well as many alpine streams and small waterfalls. At every turn this Eastern Sierra trail delivers epic peaks and pristine lakes.

5 lakes in a short distance. Beautiful in the fall as well. In my top 5 Eastern Sierra short hikes.
