Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trip takes an old sheepherder’s route, known as the Baird Trail, from the subalpine meadows at Post Corral Creek to the stunning alpine scenery surrounding Devils Punchbowl, a lake in remote Red Mountain Basin and a good spot from which to explore the basin. The trek then descends via Meadow Brook, one of the Sierra’s most picturesque subalpine meadows, to take in spectacular views of the North Fork Kings River."
