Stony Creek Trail to Jennie Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Jennie Lakes Wilderness is a nearly forgotten parcel of the western Sierra tucked between two popular national parks. The Generals Highway provides straightforward access to this gem via the Upper Stony Creek Trailhead. However, once the trail begins, the easy part ends at the start of a stiff, 4.25-mile climb to appropriately named Poop Out Pass. The upper part of the steep ascent offers fine views of the surrounding terrain, which may make the pain and suffering a bit more bearable. An early start is highly recommended to avoid the midday heat during the climb. Beyond the pass, the final 1.5-mile forested journey to Jennie Lake is much more pleasant and the lake is a fine reward for the labor involved in getting there."
