The dramatic views of Sierra Buttes and the Sardine Lakes from the Tamarack Lakes Trail and the Sardine Overlook are some of the best views accessible by trail anywhere in the region. Don’t forget to pack your camera, as any photographer-professional or amateur-will find the outstanding scenery virtually impossible to ignore. The entire route passes through open terrain, which accounts for the great views, but you’ll be faced with constant exposure to the glaring summer sun. Start your journey early in the morning to avoid the heat, and make sure to apply plenty of sunblock.
