Monarch Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"The reward for this hike’s stiff climb is a pair of lovely subalpine lakes cradled in a picturesque cirque beneath multicolored, metamorphic rock peaks. Not only is the destination stunningly beautiful, but the views of Mineral King Valley during the ascent are equally impressive. Despite the climb—2,500 feet in 3-plus miles—this trip up the Sawtooth Pass Trail is fairly popular among backpackers and dayhikers alike."
