Likely In-Season!
The trail begins in a meadow, winds along an old four-wheel-drive road, and crosses through timber for 2 miles before heading down to Dollar Lake. The trail then climbs gently above timberline to a crest on the hill with spectacular views. The overlook is reached in 4 miles, and at that point the trail sharply descends to Ruby and Pear Lakes. The government trail ends at Mountain View Crest and it is NOT recommended to continue down to Ruby Lake. Do not descend into the basin to the lakes unless you feel comfortable climbing back out.Campsites are limited near the lakes and you must camp farther than 100 feet from water. Fires are not permitted in the area. The alpine meadows are full of blooming wildflowers in late July and in August. This area has excellent views and photographic possibilities. As with all high-altitude areas, storms can move in rapidly, bringing severe wind, lightning, rain, snow, or hail--at any time of the year. Plan accordingly.
