Granite and Hidden Lakes Loop Trail

Kyburz, California

Granite and Hidden Lakes Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike showcases two scenic lakes—Granite and Hidden—that offer good destinations for a day hike or an easy overnight backpack trip. Or make it a loop hike and add a third and larger lake—Silver—to the tour, as well as some additional miles. Campgrounds and three resorts around Silver Lake offer excellent base-camp opportunities to explore this trail and other routes to the adjacent Mokelumne Wilderness."

This trail is beautiful but very hard to find. Not only was it difficult locating the trail head which is hidden amongst cabins, but the trail itself can be very ellusive. There is a section toward the top that veers left that was very difficult to locate with many false trails leading off in different directions. Also manuvering through the campground was akward and the end of the trail covers a large granite area where the trail completely disappears.
