For those who have the time, this is a beautiful section of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. This section lies within the beautiful Sky Lakes Wilderness. It offers outstanding vistas and many opportunities for side excursions. The saddle between Devil’s Peak and Lee Peak is usually impassable to horses through most of July due to the steep snowfield on the north side. The lake basins are notorious for hungry mosquitoes in early summer. Many hikers prefer to tackle this one early in the season since melting snowdrifts provide water where later in the season there is none. Travelers on horseback should wait until August.
Carry lots of water! This trail follows ridge tops and drinking water is very scarce along most of its length, unless you take Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail side excursions.
