Twenty Lakes Basin Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This splendid balloon trip from Saddlebag Lake to Lake Helen and back passes more than one lake per mile, plus a number of ponds, and in doing so offers you some of the Sierra’s finest subalpine scenery along an easy grade. With the high and low elevations only about 400 feet apart, there are no significant ascents and descents.
Still, at over 10,000 feet, you will notice the rarefied air if you try to hurry along. Note that you can cut 3.1 miles off this loop by taking the ferry across Saddlebag Lake—just show up early to get your reservation on busy summer days."
