"As far back as the mid-1980s I had read of Grizzly Lake, situated beautifully at 7,100 feet, just below Thompson Peak, the Trinity Alps' highest point at 9,002 feet. The only route I recalled was the 17.5-mile (or up to 19, depending on your source) trail from the Hobo Gulch trailhead – a two-day hike."
