The convict basin is quite a hidden gem. It's true the rock features and colors are amazing. Hiked up to Mt Baldwin from the Bright Dot lake drainage and descended via Mildred lake.
Had a lovely hike with my 15 month old son - loved the geology and the wildflowers!
unsure of date, hiked back to Laurel and enjoyed the gorgeous colors the whole way
Great hike with fantastic views from start to finish. Went a couple of miles past Mildred Lake and started up a use trail to Mt. Baldwin. Within minutes it started hailing hard. Started back then. Will do again next year.
Hiked from Convict Lake to Mildred Lake. Gorgeous fall day with beautiful tree foliage. Fantastic and unique geological formations. The stream crossing was not a problem, though one still had to be very careful. Snow level started shortly after Mildred Lake.
beautiful colors and patterns in the rocks, a unique spot in the eastern sierra
one of the best hikes in my life. will be back summer 2008. the nature is just unbelievable. stayed at mildred lake (great brook trout fishing). some of the other 8 lakes will be visited this year for sure. we just did not have enough time in 2007 for this beautiful canyon
I hiked the entire canyon in 3 days. It was a rough trail, with some real good elevation gains. We had Lake Dorothy all to our selves.
