Upper Salmon Lake Trail to Deer Lake

Bassetts, California

Upper Salmon Lake Trail to Deer Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Stunningly scenic Deer Lake is a popular destination at the height of summer, particularly on weekends. Good views abound along much of the trail, but the climax occurs at the lake, where the dramatic spires of Sierra Buttes provide a fine complement to the picturesque lake."
