Crown Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Starting beneath the Sawtooth Ridge, the most stunning parapet of crags north of the Ritter Range, this trail breaches the Sierra’s second-most-extensive roadless area with a visit to Hoover Wilderness, north of Yosemite."
--Barry Parr, Hiking The Sierra Nevada (Falcon Guides).
Great place to get a quick hike in while traveling up the I-5
Barney Lake is probably one of my favorite short trips in the Sierra. It is truly amazing. Although I made this trip a couple of years ago and can't describe the trip in too much detail, I highly reccommend this hike. We made the trip in October and were greeted with a crazy lightning storm at Crown Lake followed up with an inch of snow.
