Short hikes to a quartet of delightful lakes lures backpackers on this semiloop trip. Grass, Rock, Jamison, and Wades lakes are among the few lakes in the area where camping is allowed, which partially explains their popularity. However, camping is not the only appeal, as the scenery is superb, fishing is fair, and swimming can be quite refreshing on a typically hot summer afternoon.

There is a slight climb from the bottom where the old mine building. Once you make it up there are great views along the entire trail. The first turn off to Wades lake is a steep climb. The climb was completely worth it. All four lakes are beautiful
