Great trip for the family good fishing and saw a couple of brown bears
6/28/14, hiked from pine glen camp trail head up to upper lakes. 2200foot elevation gain, 8.7 miles. this can be a hot hike. fall is best. can be a busy horse trail.
I lived in Hilton Creek/Crowley Lake this summer, so this trail was easy access for me and my dog. I haven't completed the entire trail yet, but what we've completed thus far was very enjoyable. The beginning at the trail head is quite a steep climb, so eat your Wheaties before you head out! Fun to reach the top and peer out over Crowley Lake!
Rated easy, if your not carrying a full backpack!!!
Beautiful hike, we hiked it and continued on to Davis 2 and camped for 5 days!
Great hikes up to Hilton Lakes, great fishing and beautiful views of the mountains!
