Pretty easy low maintenance hike! Only hiked 12 today. It's about 4.5 to the first lake. We drove up from sac and spent about 4 hours on the trail.

I didn't get to rubicon lake since it was time to return on my day hike but Crag lake and Stoney lakes were beautiful. The hike itself was easy. Took me 4 hours 20 min round trip and the total of 12 miles. Next time I will leave earlier so that I can get to Rubicon Lake.
