From Bearpaw Meadow we take the Over the Hill Trail towards Elizabeth Pass and Tamarack Lake. You could also continue along the High Sierra Tral and turn left after crossing Lone Pine Creek, but the water level made this impossible. This trail begins with a short climb through a forested area. After a few short miles you come out of the forest into the valley.
Shortly after coming out of the trail we came across a pile of snow left over from an avalanche.
After crossing the remains of the avalanche we descend deeper into the valley. The trail along here is really quite simple. There may be a few obstacles, such as the avalanche remains, but the trail is in very good shape and easy to follow.
Down inside the valley the views are still quite nice. Looking south gives a very nice view of the mountains. Looking to the west you will soon have a spectacular view of Lion Rock.
Tamarack Lake is just beneath Lion Rock.
