Whomever rated this easy need to rethink the rating. Short but the climb is moderate with lots of loose gravel, granite and rocks. Bad knees and old dogs is not recommended here. Lake is amazing though, our new favorite swimming hole.

Great hike. Loved it. Only thing is the rating. It says easy here but I think it is more moderate.

Shealor Lake seems to be a popular spot on the weekends, mostly day hikers. If you're planning to stay, there aren't many established campsites and parking is scarce. However, we hiked in early on Saturday, spent one night and had an awesome time.

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!

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.

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.
