Fun little in and out overnighter to Doris lake..Made great time getting in and out. Had the 8 year old in tow and he crushed it:) Lots of mosquitos out in full force. Opted out of hammock camping and decided on the tent instead. Recommend going out a little later on in the fall, less bugs and less trail traffic. Great spot to watch the stars and sun rise over the lake.

We hiked into Doris Lake for a night. Continued on to Mink Lake after reaching the PCT junction and spent a night at the Mink Lake shelter. Took the return route up to Cliff Lake and would have been happier to have spent the night there, but the lake was pretty crowded. We ended up hiking back to Doris and then out the next day. Many misquotes, as to be expected, and many other hikers. This is a good trail system with lots of options of beautiful swimmable lakes!
