Description

From Yellowbelly Trail #096, have a laugh at the misspelled trail sign and start your hike north. The trail switchbacks a few times and climbs steadily to Edith Lake at about 1 mile. Continue another 1/2 mile to Alice Lake - Redfish Lake Trail #092 just above the lake. From here you can go left and loop back to Toxaway Lake and Alice Lake or head down into the South Fork Payette drainage. If you head to the right, you can go all the way to Redfish Lake.
