Rush Creek Lakes Kinney Camp Trail

Weaverville, California

Rush Creek Lakes (Kinney Camp) Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is the alternative route to Rush Creek Lakes. The recommended route is 3 miles shorter, but requires a steep off-trail scramble that some hikers may prefer to avoid. If you want to visit this beautiful chain of lakes but would like to hike on a trail the whole way, use the Rush Creek Lakes Trail (sometimes called the Kinney Camp Trail). The 7.2-mile route (one way) has its own drawbacks, but falling rocks is not one of them. Highlights: A tough ridgeline hike to scenic Rush Creek Lakes."
