Robinson Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A short but sometimes steep hike leads to alpine splendor at Robinson Lake in the shadow of University and Independence Peaks. Backpackers planning to overnight in the area, which is just outside the John Muir Wilderness, need not obtain a wilderness permit—a definite bonus for anyone who has been denied a permit for trails into the popular areas nearby."
