Hero: Barrett Lake Jeep Trail
small-aa Icon
Lakes, swimming, camping, fishing, hiking, and of course, rocks, tight squeezes between trees, and long hillside climbs will keep seasoned wheelers in lifted rigs entertained throughout Barrett Lake Jeep Trail. The Barrett Lake Jeep Trail, topped only by the legendary Rubicon and Fordyce Creek is one of northern California's best rock-crawling trails. In the Eldorado National Forest, Barrett Lake includes continuous challenging rock obstacles, scenic mountain views, swimming, fishing, lakeside camping, and even hiking to a past aircraft crash site north of the trail's end. If the three lakes on the way in and at the end of the trail aren't enough, continue on foot into the Desolation Wilderness north of Barrett Lake to Lost Lake, Lawrence Lake, Top Lake, Lake Number Three, and, many many more. This is a true five-star rock crawling trail!
