Good trails from coal creek but difficult in july once you hit the taylor mountain saddle and drop into taylor basin. Stay North on ridge line for easiest navigation across snowfield and circle around and drop into basin staying up in basin .and look for cairns and exit through west side of basin's ridge. Get water in Main Basin or next basin to west.Limited after that as you drop into forest.( saw a black bear here).
Camped in Main Basin with nice views to the north. Trail searching gets easier as you continue down.

Great trail for truck drivers that run. My wife and I park at the Pilot Travel Center, I-80 exit #6, go south under the interstate to access the trail near one of the restrooms. Flat paved surface, well maintained, with exercise equipment near the fishing ponds.

Grizzly Lake Trail

Grizzly Lake is a beautiful trail, accessible to hikers and horseback riders. Also a fun place to fish or swim if it's warm enough. Plenty of wildflowers in early summer, and the aspens are nice in fall. There has been some recent trail maintenance, so not as muddy as it used to be. Just watch out for cattle in the meadows, and make sure to give the bull plenty of space!

This is such a beautiful hike. It's not too treacherous, it's dog/kid friendly, and it's a good cool option when it's really hot in the valley.
