“A moderate trail in the high sierras that offers a great view of the unique Devils Bathtub.”— Matt Kissinger
This trail climbs steadily through pine woodland and is easy to follow. There are two small stream crossings which in late summer are very manageable with numerous logs to run on. There is also a great meadow about halfway that offers some spring wildflowers and open views. You'll approach the lake from the south side there are plenty of rocks and logs to sit and relax on; this a great spot for lunch or snacks. There is a primitive trail around the lake.
Return to the trailhead along the same route you took in.
