Trail was great it had it spots where it got tough but nothing you can't handle. Elevation was a killer after 2nd lake.

One of my favs in the Eastern Sierras. I know that a bold statement when there are so many great hikes to choose from but for a day hike, its the best. It didn't hurt that it is fall and the aspens were showing off at Tyee Lake #1 and #2. Didn't continue to #3 and #4 so I saved them for next time.
After you cross the short footbridge, well-marked switchbacks leads you to the first Tyee Lake at 2 miles and then another .5 mile is lake two. For the hike to all four lakes its an elevation gain of 2000 feet.

Hiked this trail from Sabrina to upper Tyee lake. Good hike with beautiful views of jagged peaks. The trail is fairly difficult to follow leading to george lake. (especially so if you do it in the dark!) First uploaded photo is of george lake, second photo is from the top of the trail climbin table mountain. Good fishing in both upper tyee and george lakes.
