Trail starts at Boreal trail head. Signs explain a few features (e.g.erratics). I recommend the left hand turn, clockwise loop so that you circle past the three lakes on the return leg. The crossover trail to Angela lake—I did not find it. At the granite cave shelter at the top of the ridge, that is where you turn right, rather than taking the trail that leads down to Donner pass road. Just head in the direction of Lake Angela. Very pretty wildflowers all over. Lakes are each pretty and good for swimming.
