Salmon Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The hike to Loch Leven Lakes is probably the most beloved of the high mountain trails visited by Sacramentans. This easy day trip is a quick drive up I-80 from the state’s capital and offers outstanding alpine scenery. The only drawback is that the traditional route to Loch Leven lakes requires you to slog up a 1000-foot-high ridge across railroad tracks, all the while accompanied by the sound of I-80 traffic and trains. But the “back” way into Loch Leven Lakes, via the Salmon Lake Trail, avoids most of the climb, all of the noise, and visits more lakes. All that is required is some patience driving on a relatively well-maintained dirt road. What’s not to like?"
