Great overnight trip. Lots of good camping spots at the lake. Views from the pass are amazing. The climb up the the switchbacks is around 1000 feet. The switch backs make it possible for most to climb such a great distance up, but it was still hard. The trail is maintained well. The ranger did check my permit so get yours.
Very nice day hike! Great tune up hike to get ready for Mt. Whitney. Because of the High Altitude I recommend you acclimate at the campgrounds at the trail head.
This is a good overnighter to gain experience with altitude. Very cold in September. Beautiful scenery.
