Laurel Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a moderate, early season weekend hike with lots of wildflowers, birds, good camping, and a rare botanical treat at the end. Signs of the 2013 Rim Fire are evident, but many trees have been scorched only around the base, and the new openings in the forest allow sunlight to reach the floor to promote luxuriant new growth. The burned snags still standing make homes for woodpeckers, bluebirds, and lots of other animals. You can expect mosquitoes, too, but while you are swatting, keep in mind that some of the loveliest flowers here, like the delicate white rein orchid, are mosquito-pollinated."
