Grizzly Lake Professional Reviews and Guides

"Grizzly Lake, a 140-acre lake, sits in a narrow valley between two ridges. Before dropping down into the valley, the trail leads to a ridge above the lake. From this ridge is a great overlook with views of Mount Holmes, Trilobite Point, Dome Mountain and Antler Peak. The trail leads through a burned area from the 1976 and 1988 fires. It is fascinating to see the new growth of the future forest."

"A nice day hike or easy overnighter, a beautiful mountain lake, and a good opportunity to see how a forest recovers from fire. The trail starts out nice and flat as it crosses Obsidian Creek on a footbridge and goes through a large meadow just south of Beaver Lake. At the west side of the meadow, the trail starts switchbacking up the side of the ridge. At this point you may see a sign for the Howard Eaton Trail going to Mammoth, but that trail has been abandoned.

The Grizzly Lake Trail stays on top of the ridge for 0.25 mile or more before switchbacking down the other side to the north end of the 136-acre lake. When you reach the lake, the trail follows the shoreline for about 100 yards before reaching the
outlet. If you’re staying overnight, carefully cross the outlet to reach the campsites along Straight Creek below the lake."
