Dinkey Lakes Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"In comparison with the hundreds of other lakes in the Sierra, the Dinkey Lakes are nothing out of the ordinary. The lakes are subalpine with trees on at least one side and spectacular walls of granite on the other. The meadows around the lakes are grassy, festooned with Labrador tea and a profusion of flowers such as colorful paintbrush, monkey-flower, primrose, penstemon, and shooting star. What makes this area so unusual is the short and easy access to the lakes and views. It is a great area for a day hike, an ideal place to take beginners backpacking, and a wonderful trail for families."
