The directions to the trail are a little confusing. The trail starts across from the parking lot and do not take any of the roads that lead away as indicated per gps. The Pacific crest Trail marker is there and that’s where you start the trail. It leads you to a service road. We took the service road to the left at it it’s a really beautiful trail however are you doing most of your uphill battle on the way out when you’re fatigued. We are going to try it next week and will start from the right.

it was a very good trail we started out at the visitor center and Wrightwood and hiked all the way down to Jackson Lake, so coming back was all uphill but that was a good hike

Really enjoyed this hike. Once you get beyond the picnic crowd it is very secluded and pleasant.
