Beautiful views. Trail is washed out a bit due to rock slides. After the stream crossing, it’s quite difficult as you’re walking over rocks and have to cross some difficult rock slide areas to get to the trail. No place to camp once you start the trail until you get to Lake Mildred so get an early start as it is all uphill.

Difficult stream crossing near the top of Convict Canyon in July, fascinating geological features. You can continue this from Lake Genevieve to Edith and Cloverleaf Lakes if you follow the inlet stream up about half a mile.
