The lakes are stunningly beautiful with it possible to see 5 on a 5 mile hike. We went at the beginning of July and the wildflowers were out in full bloom. Our dog loved cooling off in each lake that we would go by.

If you're in Reno, NV or Truckee, CA, Graeagle is a short drive form US 395 North to Highway 70 (from Reno). This is a small town and very peaceful.
