Chocolate Lakes Loop

Chocolate Lakes Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The relatively short semiloop around aptly named Chocolate Peak leads to a string of picturesque lakes. Rewards include outstanding scenery and a sense of relative seclusion away from the steady stream of recreationists traveling the heavily used Bishop Pass Trail. Unfortunately, backpackers wishing to spend a night or two in the Chocolate Lakes basin must compete for the same quota of wilderness permits as the more popular trail."

"The short semiloop around aptly named Chocolate Peak branches off the well-traveled Bishop Pass
Trail to a string of picturesque lakes. Additional rewards include not only some outstanding scenery
but also a sense of relative seclusion away from the steady stream of hikers, backpackers, and equestrians headed up the canyon of South Fork Bishop Creek."
