“A direct but steep way to the beautiful Wright Lakes in the Marble Mountain Wilderness.”— Bruce Hope
The #5534 leaves the trailhead and just starts climbing gaining over 2,500 feet along the length of the trail. You’ll soon cross an old logging road, and in about a mile, after several switchbacks, connect with another old logging road that you’ll follow for a mile or so until the trail resumes. More switchbacks and some contouring bring you to the top of the ridge just south of Point 6363.
You’ll now enjoy a short stretch of level trail to the signed junction with both the Deep Lake Trail #5535 and the Wright Lakes Trail #5537, about 3.5 miles from the trailhead. Use the Wright Lakes Trail #5537 to continue on to the Upper and Lower Wright Lakes.
