Overview

For this out-and-back run, you follow the Palisades Creek all the way up to the Upper Palisades Lake, while passing the Lower Palisades Lake.

Need to Know

This is bear country and as such you should take proper precautions.

Description

The trail from the trailhead to the lower lake is relatively easy with a steep section right before you get to the lake (there is some switchbacking at this point). From the lower lake to the upper lake, the first half is fairly flat, while the second half becomes a lot steeper with quite a few switchbacks.
