Mount Eddy and Deadfall Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Most people in the north state give snowmelt from the flanks of Mount Eddy the nod as the headwaters of the Sacramento River, at 384 miles the longest river in California. One look from the windswept, flattened top of this peak, and who’s to argue? There’s no argument when it comes to shouldering a pack into the Deadfall Lakes Basin, where man and beast can find cool, clear waters to swim, and humans can chase rainbow and brook trout in Lower and Middle Deadfall Lakes. This is a great destination for families with younger children, since the trail gains little elevation to and from the basin. It’s the hike to the peak that will have adventurers wheezing."
