Granite and Grouse Lakes

Hope Valley, California

Granite & Grouse Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"Tucked well off Highway 88 down the Blue Lakes Road is a series of out-of-the-way reservoirs that lure campers, boaters, and anglers. The area beyond these reservoirs presents some equally attractive backcountry that is sure to please even the most discriminating of hikers and backpackers. Dayhikers searching for an easy 1-mile trip will find the walk to Granite Lake to be an excellent choice.

Nestled into a little-traveled corner of Mokelumne Wilderness, Grouse Lake sits high above Summit City Canyon. Requiring only modest effort, this longer hike offers both the spectacular scenery of sweeping vistas and the intriguing beauty of geologic diversity."
