Winnemucca–Round Top Lakes Loop Trail: Mokelumne Wilderness Professional Review and Guide

"This signature hike is beloved by Sacramentans for its spectacular alpine vistas, magnificent wildflowers, sparkling lakes, and outstanding fall color. The dark volcanic ridges and peaks provide a brooding backdrop to Winnemucca and Round Top Lakes, two of the prettiest lakes in the northern Sierra. The volcanic soils also support an unusually rich wildflower display. As a consequence, be prepared to share this incredible hike with many people during the optimum summer months, and please limit your visit to Winnemucca and Round Top Lakes to day use only, to protect the fragile alpine habitat."
