Good intermediate trail that offers great views of the surrounding peaks. There are no fires above 8000 ft. in the Mokelumne, which includes this entire trail head. Grouse Lake sits in a very secluded valley (once at Grouse Lake you are cut off from nearly everything) and was lightly used even on Labor Day weekend. You can expect peace and quiet here. The Lake appears void of any fish unfortunately. The dry year killed any inlet or outlet to the lake and it is essentially a pond right now.
