“The Hump Trail takes a strenuous but rewarding shortcut to Heather Lake.”— Tilman Giese
The trail zigzags a number of times until it keeps going up straight. Most of the trail will lead you through the forest where you don't really have a nice view. Once you reach the ridge, you can look into the valley that Marble Fork Kaweah River has carved over time, with Mt. Silliman on the left.
After crossing the ridge, the trail quickly zigzags down again to merge with Watchtower Trail and the greater Lakes Trail.
