Up and Over to Highland Lake

September 29, 2018 · Highland Lake, Desolation Wilderness

This is a shorter hike with a big pay-off! Hike through some forest, gradually gaining more elevation. The views from the ridge are spectacular, and it's a tricky and steep, but brief descent from there to the lake.
