Fourth of July Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Backpackers who don’t mind regaining lost elevation will appreciate this semiloop trip through the northeast section of Mokelumne Wilderness, which includes several ponds and lakes, wildflower-covered slopes, sweeping vistas, and a deep canyon."

"Enjoy the massive wildflower displays along the trail to Winnemucca and Round Top lakes, and then leave the crowd behind as you trek to an isolated alpine tarn tucked beneath Fourth of July Peak, almost ready to drop into the Summit City Creek canyon. New trail improvements make this a simple and safe trek downhill."
