For little effort, this hike offers a lot of nature: a cool, inviting granitebasined alpine lake, a great burbling stream, and killer views. This is a trail built for children, families, and those households with a new puppy. Here, you’ll get the chance to teach some leash lessons and get your new arrival used to hiking the trails of California and beyond.
