Mosquito Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"The six enchanting Mosquito Lakes range from densely forest- rimmed to barren and rockbound. Formerly, the lakes were extremely popular destinations before the 1.5-mile trail from Cold Springs Campground was abandoned, camping at the Lake #1 was prohibited, and the trail beyond the first lake devolved into a cross-country route. Nowadays, a smattering of dayhikers trek up the newer trail to the first lake, but only a few of those travel farther off-trail to the upper lakes, offering a good chance of solitude for those who do make the journey."
