This relatively short trail leads to a delightful mountain lake featuring spectacular views of El Capitan as well as good fishing. The route is not regularly maintained and is quite steep and rough in some locations, with numerous rocks and roots exposed in the tread underfoot. Little Rock Creek Lake offers interesting base camp possibilities for mountaineers, as do a group of nameless lakes nestled in its headwaters directly below El Capitan.
