near Mineral King, California (United States)

Mineral King in the fall is the best! This is another wonderful hike in the Mineral King area. I would recommend hiking to Monarch Lakes first, and then head over to Crystal Lake. It seems safer to hike up steep terrain instead of down steep terrain, and there are a few steep sections between Monarch Lakes and the saddle above Crystal Lake. (I don't think I chose the easiest route in this section.)

Anyway, I caught lots of small trout at Crystal Lake, and I saw plenty of trout in the Monarch Lakes too. Mineral King provides!!
