Ocean Beach, CA
Pathfinder | 80 pts
It is seven miles from Agnew Meadows trailhead to the lake. So, 14 mile round trip. I backpacked in on a Friday and out on a Sunday. The trail is excellent and well improved. When you approach lake take the trail to the left to go around the East side of the lake. I went to the West and ended up climbing on six foot bolders with my 55 lb pack (camera gear weights a lot!). Camping is currently only allowed on West side of lake and to the South. Plenty of places to pitch a tent. There are many easy day hikes from here to other lakes (Iceberg is just a mile or so up the hill.). Ediza is a BEAUTIFUL lake and you can see photos of it here that I've uploaded or on my site www.viewbyness.com.
