Counties Trail is in:

From the Van Vleck trailhead, follow the Highland Trail (15E21) east beyond the locked gate at Tells Creek for 0.5 miles where The Red Peak Trail (13N22D/15E08) splits off to the right. The trail continues beyond the end of the 13N22D road. It has an easy grade for the first 1.3 miles but then begins to climb as the trail provides access to Lake No.3, Lake No.5, Lawrence Lake, and Barrett Lake. There are excellent views of the Crystal Basin along the trail. The first 1.3 miles of the trail is outside of the wilderness. The last 3-4 miles are inside the boundary and will require a Desolation Wilderness permit.
