I hike this typically a couple times a year with my family in late summer. Bring your tommy bahama chairs, snacks, and pool floats to make a perfect afternoon chillin in Silver Lake, or Big Bear.

Great hike! Nice paved road to drive into the beginning of the trail. Lost phone service, but with this app it kept track of my location. All of the lakes were beautiful. Wish I took my fishing pole. Will be back!

Our kids (4 & 7) are great hikers and loved this. It was a great length for kids with almost no down time between beautiful lakes and interesting terrain.

this whole area is so beautiful, no shortage of lakes, views, wildflowers, trails, etc. We have hiked from Long lake trailhead up to the Pacific Crest and down to Round lake and Silver lake as well, making about a 9 mile. there is an amazing view of the Sierra Buttes on the PCT walking in southern direction, don't just stop at the first beautiful overlook,, there are so many.
