Long and High Lakes

Long and High Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"The gently graded trails into this area provide a reasonably easy trip to a handful of scenic lakes along the Cottonwood Lakes and New Army Pass Trails, where a plethora of open, rock-strewn basins and grassy meadows permit fine views of the rugged eastern Sierra Crest. Although this picturesque area is quite popular during the height of summer, many of the more-far-flung lakes are lightly visited.

Snow leaves the area by mid-July following an average winter, and the typically sunny and mild Sierra weather continues through summer. Autumn can be a pleasant time for a hike because the crowds diminish and the weather is cooler but generally sunny. The first significant snowfall at these elevations usually comes sometime by late October or November."
