Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail leads you passed several lakes through lush green and great views of the surrounding mountains. From Emerald Lake Trailhead, head down to Coldwater Creek and carefully walk over the trunk to get to the other side. The trail makes a wide right turn and leads through shadowy forest with the occasional green meadow and small pond, some of which offer marvelous reflections.

At 1.5 miles, you'll reach Lake Barrett—a great place for taking in the scenery with Mammoth Mountain in the background, but also a great place to swim on a hot summer day. The trail briefly veers away from the lake to join TJ Lake Loop. Stay right to return to Lake Barrett. Once you leave Lake Barrett behind you, the trail will steeply descend to Lake George and end at Lake George Campground.
