This place is like the veins of the earth. There are places to explore and swim here where no other humans have ever trodden. Some of the most beautiful scenery and peaceful feelings you will ever experience.

pretty challenging trail. easy to lose the trail which I did several times. combined a couple other trails to make a 29 mile loop

some of the best swimming holes I've ever seen.

Hiked to Woodchuck Lake the first night after deciding counterclockwise was best for my time crunch with the sun. The portion after Woodchuck Lake was overgrown with vegetation and followed along the side of the trench. Upwards towards Crown Pass was a bit disorientating and keeping a good eye out for stone totems was a must. A view of the Sierras left me in awe as I sat for a light snack. The traverse down was a few simple switchbacks leading to a meadow and the edge of Crown Lake. After a small nap and some food at Crown Lake I decided to hike the rest of the loop in a timely fashion. The trail gets a bit distorted from pine cones and brush until back to the original trailhead.
