Trail shared by Steve Perruccio

Fairly easy trail to a beautiful place. Continue up to the ridgeline for even better views.

Description

The trailhead is located up Pearl Pass just before the first switchback where it turns rocky; a Subaru might not make it, but any SUV or truck should.

It starts with a fairly steep climb then levels off to an easy climb around 0.5 miles in. The trail brings you through a forest then opens up with nice views along the way. There are quite a few spots to pitch a tent and one just a couple hundred feet down from the lakes to hang a hammock.

You can make your way up to the top of the ridgeline for some more views, but the trail ends at the lakes.
