This was a great little loop. Hot sun, cold water. Be advised! There are two major water crossings. There were no bridges on either of them June 1, 2019. The first crossing was chilly but doable! About 2, 2.5 feet deep (a little over knee deep / almost thigh deep on a 5’ tall woman.) However, the second river crossing — the Sacramento — was raging and there was no way across. We had to bribe some 7-year-olds to take our stuff across the outlet in their little mini-kayaks while we swam across. It was FREEZING but exhilarating!! Six foot tall dudes can wade most of the way but the current gets swift and it’s better to swim (or, if you’re a 5’ tall woman you’ll have no choice.) Definitely the highlight of our trip!

Be advised, though, if those kids weren’t there to take our stuff there’s really no way to get across with your packs, so be prepared for an up-and-back.

Otherwise, this was a very easy hike, almost no elevation gain or loss, beautiful views, easy to take a dip in the (freezing) lake.

You may want to stay on the road/ trail when you get to the Lake Sis restaurant and park rather than take our route, as we got a little lost and had to do some up and down thru the little river grottos and trudge thru people’s yards.

Great hike! Dog friendly. Enjoy!
