  • The elevation is a little challenging but it is worth it. Parking is difficult but if you go real early or kinda later in the afternoon like we did, then you can find good parking.  more »
  • Walked the trail here on our first day. Views of the lake are amazing. Trail is well marked and fairly easy although somewhat steep in places.  more »

  • Beautiful park! The Cal-Nev trail is a good hike. It's a 3.5 mile loop with a pretty good uphill in the beginning. You're already up around 6000 at the start and probably go up another 500 or so. I'm not a regular hiker and I did it carrying my two year old. The trail markings can be lacking in some spots. There are a couple of scenic vistas and the whole trail is full of beautiful scenery and views down to the lake. Lots of fun
  • Fantastic hike. Not too strenuous but definitely a good workout. Views are amazing at every turn. Get to see some landscape scarred by fires from many years ago and some nice waterfalls. Beware the signage can be confusing... When you approach each post, look on all sides of the post to make sure you're heading where you want to go.
