Beautiful High Sierra lake near Twin Lakes@Bridgeport. Featuring beautiful high desert and alpine views of the Eastern Sierra and Sweetwater Mountains. Route features a pond about a mile before the lake and herds of Mule Deer among other flora and fauna.

A deceptively hard hike with big elevation gain, worth it with such a beautiful clear lake at the end.
More small lakes are beyond and the center peak can be seen from 395. Had snow in September, one of my favorite hikes of all time.
