I’ve hiked this trail well over a dozen times over the past 40 years. It is my favorite hike on the planet and very special for our family’s many generations. Woods Lake is wonderful for camping and starting point. From there hike through redwood forest climbing up through beautiful meadow with stream and wild flowers up to lake Winnemucca, which is spectacular. Great lunch spots around the lake. Then go on to Round Top, which is more barren above the tree line, but beautiful. Usually some melting snow even in the summer. Then descend back down to woods lake. There used to be an old gold mine entrance along the way back down. Pretty solid climbing all the way up to the two lakes - but so beautiful it’s worth it. Then fairly easy descent back down. IMHO, it’s the most beautiful hike on the planet. Hope to get back there again soon. Love!
