An old mining road leads to a scenic cirque lake and one of the most impressive views of Sierra Buttes in the entire area. A tricky ford, ankle-twisting roadbed, and stiff climb may deter the faint of heart, but hikers who don’t mind such adversity will reap big rewards for their efforts on this route.
