GPX for this trip
|Parts of the trail go right along the edge of the cliffs.|
|There were many places along the way for the group to stop and get a picture.|
|Taking the Lighthouse trail allows a loop to be made. This part of the trail is not as close to the cliffs as the Rubicon Trail section is.|
|The views from the Lighthouse Trail up toward Desolation Wilderness and Mt. Tallac specifically were pretty amazing.|
|There is a nice beach area to swim at the turnaround point of the Lighthouse and Rubicon Trails.|
|Some rocky terrain near the beach allows for some fun exploring.|
|Sweeping vistas from the trail
are everywhere and they are pretty amazing.
|The group found a nice rocky backdrop for one last picture along the way.|
|Parts of this section of trail were cut right out from the rock.|
|Some of the group checking out
the views from a sunny viewpoint.
