Description

This trail links the Pacific Crest Trail with the northern end of the Sky Lakes Basin. It ends at the Sky Lakes Trail #3762, which can be followed south past several nice lakes to connect with several other trails (Donna Lake Trail, Divide Trail, Cherry Creek Trail) in this area. It passes several small lakes ideal for dispersed camping and offers big views to the south near its junction with the PCT.
