Little Five and Big Five Lakes Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This loop exposes backpackers to the best of what the Mineral King area has to offer. Both Little Five and Big Five Lakes basins contain picturesque lakes with excellent camping and fishing. Flower-carpeted meadows, rushing streams, and quiet forests, all in the shadow of the Great Western Divide, offer plenty of scenic delights along the way. Add alpine Columbine Lake and far-reaching views from nearby Sawtooth Pass, and you have nearly every component of a classic High Sierra trip. Mountaineers and cross-country enthusiasts have much to choose from as well."
