Fairly easy hike along a jeep trail. I went in the early afternoon and not too hot. Rolling hills of sage and meadows with small streams flowing. I did not do the loop but chose to go in and out the same way. Lots of birds on both lakes, Junction and Kirman.

Fishing was difficult due to the vegetation surrounding the lake. One would need a float tube if you were serious about fishing. Saw a beautiful doe on the way back just out in the middle of the field eating. Also saw the biggest rattle snake I have ever seen slithering across the trail.
Be on the lookout while hiking!
