"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."
