Caples Lake to Emigrant Lake

Caples Lake to Emigrant Lake Professional Review and Guide

"This is a popular hike, since you’ll get two great lakes—the first right outside your car door and the second after a surprisingly easy trek into the rugged, 105,165-acre Mokelumne Wilderness Area. This wilderness area, designated by Congress in 1964, straddles the crest of the central Sierra Nevada within the Stanislaus, Eldorado, and Toiyabe national forests."
