All trail-locating anxieties now behind you, you and pooch can get on with the business of having fun. If you’ve hiked several of the other Sierra trails in this book, this one won’t be the most memorable. But it has the unique distinction of being the most easily accessible lake in the Jennie Lakes Wilderness, not to mention how close pooch will get to hiking in Sequoia National Park on this trail."

"This pretty hike leads to Weaver Lake in the Jennie Lakes Wilderness, where you will ?nd a lovely lake backed by high granite cliffs. The Jennie Lakes Wilderness is a small pocket of land tucked between the General Grant Grove section of Kings Canyon National Park and the southwest corner of the main body of Kings Canyon, with Sequoia National Park lying directly to the south.

The wilderness covers a low shoulder of the Kings-Kaweah Divide that extends beyond the boundary of the national park."
