"By following the directions given here, you can piece together a rewarding loop hike that uses a forgotten alignment of the earliest highway into the Lagunas, visits the shady recesses of Agua Dulce Creek, and traverses the south arm of Laguna Meadow. When several inches or more of snow accumulates above the 5000-foot level, the route becomes excellent for cross-country skiing."

This loop was a good five and a half mile hike. The best part of the hike was crossing the Laguna Meadow. The trail had only modest elevation gains but it was good to hike in the forest of Mt Laguna.
The weather was great today - 65 degrees, sunny and windy.
