Description

This is a great trail for a day or multi-day run. Start out at the Tyee Lakes Trailhead along South Lake Road. There is a dirt parking area, and the trailhead is toward the north end of the parking area (GPS: 37.195929, -118.564753). First, you'll cross over the footbridge that spans Bishop Creek, then start on a 2.5 mile run to the first lake.

You'll encounter many switchbacks on your way up to the first lake. The first lake offers good fishing of small-sized brook trout. To get to the second lake, get ready for a short and steep run. The second lake is small and grassy.

The third and fourth lakes are another short and steep run up. The fourth lake offers more good fishing opportunities. The fifth lake is yet another short run up into the basin and offers more great fishing and views.
