Soldier Lakes and Rock Creek Professional Review and Guide
"Easy access and stunning scenery in Cottonwood Lakes Basin make the area one of the more popular weekend destinations on the east side of the southern Sierra. However, most weekenders don’t possess the extra time or energy to continue over the divide at New Army Pass and down to the exquisite backcountry in the Rock Creek drainage. The Rock Creek Trail leads to wildflower-laden meadows, quiet forests, and lovely subalpine lakes. This trip also provides the option of an off-trail journey into Miter Basin, one of the most dramatic alpine basins in the High Sierra, where a bevy of pristine lakes reflect towering peaks."
