Trail description: At lower Lindsey Lake a gate controls vehicle access to Culbertson Lake and beyond.  Motorized access is for private landowners.  PG&E, NID and Forest Service only.  One may hike to any of the three Lindsey Lakes or to Culbertson Lake by following the road.  Fishing at any of these lakes is fair to good; however, it is generally agreed that Culbertson Lake provides the best fishing. From Culbertson lake, follow the trail to the Rock Lakes.  Bullpen Lake, to the west, is one of the few lakes in California which is stocked with arctic greyling.  Heavy stands of timber surround the Rock Lakes.  The trail continues east to a point where it joins the Grouse Ridge Trail.
