Shealor Lake Trail is a 2.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Kyburz, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
A favorite for sure for a quick getaway when you really need to just get gone for a little while. Easy hike in and although up hill on the way out, it's not too steep. Disperse camped here and spent the day climbing around the waterfall and boulders. Great time! Here's our full write up. http://hustzkergies.blogspot.com/2016/06/shealor-lake.html
Definitely a beautiful hike with great views! Very steep and rocky down to the lake (climbing down and around granite boulders/ground) Glad I didn't have my kids with me... even the dogs got tired hiking up and over the hill. I would rate it moderate not easy... Mileage easy... Terrain moderate to hard. Wish I would have had poles. Very hard to stay on trail.
Would definitely do again!

Enjoyed the views. Poles were helpful.
Did this twice now. Very beautiful. Not a hard hike but you have to keep an eye on the switchbacks. Older dogs may have a hard time.
Good day hike! Easy to loose the trail on the way back out.
One of the best hikes we've done.
Short and sweet hike. Loved it up here! It's pretty easy to get lost, just follow the stacked rocks :)
Beautiful views of Silver Lake and the Sierras. Beautiful little lake. Perfect for a quick hike in and out.
Very fun hike and well worth the drive from Sacramento. The hike in has a small incline then downhill. The hike out is uphill. Wear sunscreen and shoes with good traction.
Great up and down hike. We saw a racer on the way. Only a couple of other people at the lake. Great relaxing hike on our way up to Hope Valley.
very good first hike for a warm up to a busy summer of back packing. Took my grandson there over memorial weekend . he loved the hike & swimming in the 60 deg water .nice rocks to jump into the lake from. 2 decent camp sites that we will use later this month. not near kyburs but across the hwy from silver lk on 88.nice trail head parking .easy navigating with some basic orienteering skills.Well worth the effort.
It's an amazing place for such a short hike. We went in early April and there was a little snow in the shady areas but a very manageable hike. There is a bit of route fining required, but just keep your eyes out for the cairns and you'll be fine.
Nice trail, keep an eye out for the little rock pilings marking the trail. Not necessarily easy, but fun!
