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.
