    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "This trek takes you through the Jennie Lakes Wilderness and Kings Canyon National Park to a high, forested lake at the base of Twin Peaks.

    Follow the Roaring River trail (Hike 77) to the four-way junction near Rowell Meadow at 2.4 miles. Next, follow the trail to Seville Lake (Hike 78) to the trail junction in Belle Canyon at 5.4 miles. From this junction turn left (east), crossing a very shallow creek and passing the trail leading left (northeast) to Comanche Meadow at 5.5 miles.

    Wade the wide but shallow Sugarloaf Creek, then begin an ascent through a dense forest. After a small switchback the trail follows a stringer meadow uphill before entering an area of boulders at the ridge crest. A view of Mitchell Peak can be had through the trees to the north."
