Overview

No major obstacles but trail is tight, steep and rocky in places. Lots of downed trees and big tree roots. Aggressive stock SUVs can do it, but damage is likely.

This trail doesn’t see a lot of traffic because it’s a long way from Shaver Lake. Fortunately, the entire drive to the trail is paved. The trail is cut through thick trees, so views are limited to the top of two large rock outcrops. There’s camping at the end of the trail, which climbs above 9,000 feet, but again, trees block the views. The lakes are good size, but you must hike to them, so you’re likely to find seclusion if quiet fishing is your goal. Open to green-sticker vehicles. No side trails to explore or turns to get confused.
