The Mosquito Lakes Trailhead can be used to access Heiser Lake and Bull Run Lake. From Bull Run Lake, the trail continues to the Stanislaus Meadow Trailhead parking area.

Shortly after the trailhead, the Emigrant/Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail (MCCT) branches off to the right and a short distance later the Mosquito Lakes to Pacific Valley/MCCT Trail branches off to the left. The Mosquito Lakes to Pacific Valley portion of the MCCT was completed in 2015; since it is a new trail, it may not be shown on some maps. As of September 2020, the map on this web page did not show the trail; however, trailhead symbols show the beginning and ending points. Please visit the Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail website for more information and a map.
