Silver Divide Loop Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Six beautiful lakes, two passes (both near 11,000 feet in elevation), and flower-covered meadows make this loop one of the best hikes in the area. Part of this loop follows the route of the combined John Muir Trail/Pacific Crest Trail (JMT/PCT), which is well maintained and easy to follow even in early season. However, the Goodale Pass Trail, the return leg of the loop, is designed for stock rather than human use and requires several difficult fords of Cold Creek, making late season the best time for the complete loop."
