Correction to Secor

Matthes Crest

by Chris Hahn

About the approach: We went in past Budd Lake and through the Echo Peaks pass as recommended by Secor, we went out on the Cathedral Lakes Trail. I would recommend this loop. It gives different scenic views of the beautiful Tuolumne back country and it takes advantage of the less-steep approach to the Echo Peaks pass from the north. We didn't feel like climbing up the steep scree between the Echo Peaks on the way back. Both hikes took about 3 hours for two forty something hikers.
