Floating Island and Cathedral Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"For those who desire something easier than the climb to the summit of Mt. Tallac , the 2.5-mile hike to the Floating Island and Cathedral lakes on the Mt. Tallac Trail is a fine option. The lakes are both scenic but look very different: Floating Island is a forest-rimmed lake named for mats of sod that periodically break away from the shore and float around the lake, while Cathedral exudes much more of a subalpine ambience. While overnight camping is allowed at the lakes, campsites are nearly nonexistent at Floating Island and of marginal quality at Cathedral."
