Thousand Island Lake Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The stunningly scenic Middle Fork of the San Joaquin River Valley has a richly deserved reputation as an excellent hiking area. There are three trails up the Middle Fork Valley that converge near Thousand Island Lake, creating several loops. This hike follows the High Trail, with its exceptional views of the Minarets and the Ritter Range north to Thousand Island Lake, then returns south along the base of the Ritter Range via the John Muir and River Trails."
