The Woods Lake Trail is a moderate 4.8 mile hike through the beautiful alpine scenery of the Mokelumne Wilderness. The trail loops around three lakes starting at Woods Lake to Winnemucca then Round Top Lake. The trail wanders through forests of western white pine and mountain hemlock. Hikers with a keen eye might spot remnants of a miners grinding rock which dates back to the early days of the California Gold Rush. The trail then begins to climb across an open hill side, which can be covered with a variety of wildflowers. Suddenly the scenery opens up to a spectacular view of Round Top Mountain. The trail continues to climb as the sound of the cascading creek lures you upward until you reach the glistening water of Winnemucca Lake. The last climb leads you to Round Top Lake before finishing the loop back to Woods Lake. Trip includes guides and transportation. Minimum age is 12.
