Topo Maps: Cisco Grove, English Mt

Trail description: From Meadow Lake, a four-wheel-drive trail proceeds west towards Baltimore Lake.  At a point one and one-half mile west of Meadow Lake the four-wheel-drive trail ends, with a good view of French Lake to the north.  A foot trail descends across a rocky hillside toward Baltimore Lake, which lies in a heavily timbered basin. There are a number of good campsites and fishing is generally good.

The trail leaves Baltimore Lake and climbs over a saddle for a gentle descent into the Beyers lakes area, a group of four lakes in a rocky landscape with a border of fir trees.  From this point the trail continues west to its junction with the Grouse Ridge Trail.

Keep a clean camp. Do not attract animals to your site.  Pack all your trash home with you when you leave.
