hiked all the way through from hilton lakes to crowley blm today. the trail was relatively easy, although wet and marshy at Davis Lake. lots of bugs. 2nd Lake and Davis Lake were beautiful. Had to cross a pretty deep stream on the Crowley side, it was a little sketchy but doable. Very fun adventure.

A group of us backpacked up to Davis Lake and 2nd lake. Fun hike. Lots of snow at the top ridge before you descend to the lakes. It made following the trail difficult. The views all around were gorgeous. There are several streams to cross on the trail in the first few miles. You'll be in and out of the shade of pines. It was real warm this weekend, even in areas with the snow. As a day hike it's nice to the ridge, but may be difficult to get to the Hilton lakes right now. The view or 2md lake was amazing. The fishing in Davis was great.

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!
