This is an amazing hike. The 13 mile road to the trailhead can be a little rough. It is "passable" in a car, but a 4x4 is recommended. The trail can be confusing to follow, but there are trial markers the whole way, so look for stacked rocks. This hike is about 7.5 mile the whole way. You will first hit First Dinkey Lake, then South Lake, Swede Lake, and Mystery Lake. Swede Lake is home to a huge waterfall, and is a good spot to stop, eat, and take in the surrounding area. When you get to the trail junction, make sure you go towards First Dinkey Lake first, this will make your hike a lot easier. It is steep at first, but once you get to the lake, the rest is downhill. Highly recommended hike if you have a car that can make it to the trailhead (no Prius's). (See photos: http://alltrails.com/trail/us/california/dinkey-lakes-trail)
