lake beaches

lake wildflowers
Wildflowers in mid summer. White sand beaches, created from decomposed granite, on opposite side of lake. Take a picnic lunch & make a hike of it. This place is perfect for a half day hike if you happen to be camping at Red Lake.

alpine lakesarea activities:

jeep routes
Red Mountain Trail is real rough. Maintained by local 4WD clubs. Maybe a lifted &/or locked 4WD would be the better choice. This road should be taken by only experienced off-roaders!

Red Lake
Shaver Lake

Huntington Lake
Bluer than blue!! Western Sierra lake that is not easy to reach, but with 4WD vehicle, horseback or backpacking in on foot, the water source is a prime lake destination. Good fishing & great camping. It takes a determination to access this special place, so you may as well spend a couple of days here. The first lake you reach will be Red Lake, just keep going another 2 miles up. Winter weather can snow as early as October, and by December the dirt road is usually closed for the season.
