Tamarack Lakes Road to Sierra Buttes Professional Review and Guide

"Just as in the old saying about Rome, all roads (and trails) in this area seem to lead to the lookout atop Sierra Buttes, at least eventually. The unrivaled aerie that provides such an unparalleled view is an achievement any physically fit visitor to the region should experience at least once.

Although not the shortest way to the top, this route passes a pair of picturesque lakes on the way-fine destinations for a picnic lunch en route, a refreshing dip after the strenuous climb, or an overnight destination well-suited for recovering from the steep ascent."
