Ridge Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"Want that alpine high with a minimum of effort? Hiking to Ridge Lakes might be right up your alley. But don’t misunderstand: A minimum of effort doesn’t mean you won’t have to work to reach these airy heights. While this route hardly compares to an ascent of any of the surrounding mountains, including Lassen Peak, you will have to climb nearly 1,000 feet in 1 mile to reach the lakes. Highlights: These small alpine tarns are cupped in a basin below Brokeoff Mountain and Mount Diller."
