Lyons Creek TrailOur drive up was a bit smokey, we wondered if our plans were a good idea.
As we climbed elevation on our way to the trailhead, our view was smokey but we pressed on to check it out.
We sat to take a rest and a cool refreshing breeze came in, but unfortunately brought with it more smoke from the California fires burning tens of thousands of acres.
No more water is running much below the creek crossing just before the Lyons Lake junction. The small pools have fish trapped, but surviving.
Pack enough water to get you to your destination. At the Lyon's Creek crossing there was a trickle of running water is all.
The lakes look fine, and Lyons Lake didn't have the heavy smoke but Sylvia did.
|On a normal day you can see mountains ahead from this point! They were completely obscured by smoke.|
I suggest contacting the Pacific Ranger Station before going until the air clears up some.
