    • Man, I really hope you are able to. The Trinity Alps are absolutely incredible. I know I shouldn’t but I sometimes forget just how vast, rugged and spectacular they are and then, when I go there again, I fall in love with them all over again. It is like having our own pocket of the Sierra Nevada right in our backyard!

  1. I have to agree with you on Grizzly Lake. I’ve only managed to get there once, but it was so incredible that it stuck in my mind and I’ve been wanting to get back there ever since. Of the lakes I’ve hiked to in the Trinity Alps, Grizzly Lake was easily the best.

    • Some of the other lakes in the Trinities really are fantastic: Caribou, Canyon Creek, Emerald, Sapphire, Smith, Diamond, Granite, Bear, Echo…and the list goes on. However, at the end of the day, nothing beats Grizzly. The combination of towering granite, glacier, massive lake, plunging waterfall and lush meadow pretty much sums up alpine heaven in my book. I think the whole Grizzly complex is, simply put, one of the most spectacular places in the entire country (and I have been around the block a few times…).

      I hope you are able to make it back there at some point. It is magnificent!
