I only went part way on this trail and took a side trail to "No Name Lake" which is about 2.5 miles from the trailhead which begins near the Timber Creek Resevoir. "No Name Lake" is a great little fishing lake and fork that leads to it doesn't indicate there there is a lake there and can easily be overlooked. If you stay on the main trail, it leads to Yellow Lake. I found a shortcut to Yellow Lake, an animal trail that is very steep and treacherous up the side of the cliff. But it is only about a half a mile or so to Yellow Lake from "No Name Lake". Don't try carrying a pack up it! According to my e-trex GPS, "No Name Lake" sits at about 9100 ft. So, if one has a tendancy toward altitude sickness, you might want to skip that hike and Yellow Lake is even higher! I have photos of No Name Lake but not Yellow Lake. This area is also know to have bears but I have only seen one in all my trips there and it was down by the reservoir. The reservoir is very shallow but good fishing. "No Name Lake" is much deeper and excellent fishing.....not big fish but average size - good for cooking in a campfire. this hike is not a long hike but somewhat strenous, especially once you reach the fork that goes up to the 1st lake. I wouldn't take small children up it. I would also recommend taking filtered water bottles for drinking water as the trail follows the creek up the hill and there are several places along the way to fill up. All in all, this is one of my favorite backpacking trips.
