Trail Overview
Spanish Route
This is a remote trail that doesn't get too many visitors. It is a beautifully forested route with a few rock outcrops that supply some amazing views. Camping is available towards the end of the trail. If you want to access any of the large lakes, you'll need to hike. There are no side trails or alternate routes, and it is open to green-sticker vehicles.
Getting There
From Highway 168 in Shaver Lake, take Dinkey Creek Road east 11.8 miles. Turn right on McKinley Grove Road (F.S.R. 40) before Dinkey Creek Inn (supplies and gas available to public). Continue southeast another 17 miles and cross Wishon Reservoir Dam. After dam, go another 2.8 miles and turn right on 11S07. Trail is on left in another 1.6 miles.
