Hiked this on the 9th of November 2017. There is no snow on the trail until almost 9000 ft and even then the snow is minimal. There are plenty of places to hike on the way up crown but I recommend pushing all the way to crown. The lake is gorgeous and worth the trip. We were the only people on the lake due to the time of year which made it even better. It got cold at night but not unbearable. This was by far one of the best backpacking experiences I've had in the Sierras. The trail is easy to follow and not too strenuous.

excellent hike. beautiful fall colors and peeler lake is gorgeous! bring your fishing pole! steep from barney to peeler but mainly flat from twin to barney

ended up going to peeler lake and stayed overnight. hike was challenging with a pack on but totally worth it

Great backpacking sites at Crown lake. This trail is very underrated in comparison to trails in Yosemite. Wonderful hike and backpacking trip

Spent 1 night at Peeler Lake, and the next on the ridge above Snow Lake. Incredibly beautiful area, fantastic trail, lots of mosquitos, would definitely return.

One of my favorites, I kept going and turned it into a 50 mile loop. Gorgeous views and strenuous in several parts. Several bears were spotted

We started out at the Twin Lakes/Mono Village Resort area. Since we were backpacking, we left our car overnight, which is a $10 fee up to 6-7 days. You have to take all food out of your car because bears will get into it and destroy cars! Anyways, the trail up to Crown Lake is very scenic. You get a good view of the Sawtooth Ridge. We camped up behind Crown Lake so we could get a good view of Slide Mountain. The only problem with this hike is that it started snowing with high winds! Otherwise, very scenic, very nice, very gradual elevation gain.
