    The trail and the views are beautiful. Be sure to bring some water. The views down to the lakes are great. If you are acrophobic, the stairs up to the lookout might be a bit scary but the 360 degree view is worth it.

    Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

    Bubba Suess
    "The trip to the summit of the stunning Sierra Buttes is one of the classic hikes of the Sierra Nevada. The trail features lakes large and small and incredible views, culminating in an exciting ascent to a marvelously exposed lookout tower. Three different trailheads offer differing lengths and difficulties, but the full hike described here features the most magnificent vistas and incredible scenery." Read more
