Toejam Lake

Postby juscro » Mon Jul 25, 2016 9:31 pm

Did a two nighter to Emigrant last Friday. Great to be able to drive 3.5 +/- to the trailhead from the bay area (left around 1 pm). As always the rangers at Summit Ranger Station were super pleasant and we got our permit in about 5 minutes.

Didn't get on the trail until 4 pm from Gianelli Cabin so stayed the night at Powell Lake. Mosquitos were present but didn't seem too aggressive. My friends border collie/lab mix loved the lake

Hiked to Toejam lake. Great swimming. Did not bring my fishing gear but there were medium size brookies cruising the shelf along the shore. Two other groups showed up but the layout of the lake was nice and we didn't really see other folks unless they were at the shore swimming or getting water.

Lots of wildflowers.

Thanks for the report, that lake is getting very popular. Nice to hear you got some solitude.

Nice. Although I love the name, I prefer Leopold Lake just up the hill.
