Sylvia and Lyons Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"At the end of Lyons Creek Trail, the Desolation Wilderness yields up two of its most beautiful tarns. Sylvia Lake sits beneath hidden Pyramid Peak and makes a great staging spot for a climb to the summit. The rewarding climb to Lyons Lake brings you face-to-face with magnificent beauty—from the flowers at your feet to the towering trees growing out of the sheer granite walls. This moderate hike offers wildflowers, lakes, and gentle streamside pools for hikers’ pleasure."
