The trail to Crag Lake may just whet the appetite of those who want to get past the crowds and set a bivy for a night under the stars. Rubicon ?lls the bill for solitude. Hike southwest along Meeks Creek, steadily ascending to Genevieve Lake and then Crag Lake. A side trip to Hidden Lake is not unwarranted for those who wish to be, well, hidden. But just a moderate climb past Shadow Lake and Stony Ridge Lake heads you up to the last 500 vertical feet to Rubicon Lake.
