Minaret Lake Trail 5.1 mi

  • The Minaret Lake Trail is accessed via the overlapping Pacific Crest and John Muir trails from the Devils Postpile trailhead in the Devils Postpile National Monument.  From its junction with the John Muir Trail at the edge of Johnston Meadow in the Ansel Adams Wilderness, this trail follows the drainage of Minaret Creek all the way to its headwaters at Minaret Lake. For a big loop, continue on to Cecile and Iceberg Lakes and return to the John Muir Trail at the shore of Shadow Lake.
