This is a difficult trail to make it up. Make sure your legs can handle going uphill for approximately 3 hours. The reward for the climb are some of the most beautiful views of diamond peak and of about 12 beautiful crystal clear secluded mountain lakes. The start of the hike across trapper creek is very nice and a good warm up. Not a whole lot to see until you get to the first un-named lake on the left, and then Karen lake, and just beyond that is beautiful Yoran Lake with 2 different islands. There is a loop you can make by hiking from Yoran lake to Lils lake and then the pacific crest trail down. This loop makes it about a 12 mile hike. The down hill portion of the hike was fairly easy on the PCT. But you will see multiple lakes on this trail. One big suggestion in july and august- bring lots of skeeter spray or better yet wear netting on arms and hat to protect yourself or you will get eaten alive.
