Great hike with a nice overlook to 4th of July lake if you go around the mountainside.
Nice gradual elevation with several spectacular mountains.

Great hike with lovely views and a good workout. But like most places that are featured on social media (Carson Pass Visitor Info Station has its own Facebook page), it is no longer "lightly traveled" - you now have to arrive early to get a parking space for the trailhead and at least on weekends, the trails are pretty busy. Alltrails may want to edit their description.

A couple of lakes really. Last September I joined Jere's Jaunts for a COLD fall hike. Early morning temps were literally freezing. Lucky I packed warm. one of our group, Marty, showed up in shorts as usual and a light fleece jacket. He and his wife got out of the car and upon seeing the frozen water in the parking lot at Carson Pass immediately began complaining. To his credit he made it half way before saying we were all nuts. LOL!

I loved this hike. Fairly moderate with only one slippery, icy water crossing. We all made it with ease. I also like it cold. So refreshing up in the Sierras!

As of 2/18/18, there’s plenty of snow. The views are beautiful, and the trail isn’t too steep. The trail is pretty easy to follow. I loved the surrounding views of mountains and frozen lakes. Not too crowded. We will be back.

One of my favorite places to hike.
I prefer winter months but spring is excellent too.

Took my 7 yr old on his first backpacking trip. Perfect first trip! Campsite permits are first come first serve at the trail head. Night #1 at camp just NW of Winne Lake, great views of valley to West to Caples. Night #2 at camp overlooking North side of Lake. Day hiked to Round Top Lake, summited Sisters and got pretty close on Round Top, get's sketchy for a little guy. Great trip!

Easy trail. Nice views. There was a lot of snowpack so first timers should have your alltrails going.
