Found it on the Stanislaus Nat'l Forest map. No trail on the map for Burgson Lake, however, we did find a well worn footpath down to the lake. There were boy scouts there and also a forest service crew disassembling fire rings. The swimming was okay, but we're pretty sure there might have been leaches. We hiked in from the Wheat's Meadow Trail. It was about six miles round trip. On a scale of 1 to 5, we rate this hike a 3. 5 for difficulty. Enjoyed
the hike. It's a nice trail through rugged terrain. Says Brad & Lynn Becker
Great little lake if you know how and where to find it. It's not on any map I know of. Oh and they forgot to mention the 2+ mile hike! Says Bill Lewis
Oh this lake is on the maps, just doesn't have a trail to it. I came in on my horse from the Wheats Meadow side. Wow! What a long granite climb down into it, but well worth it as no one knows it's there. I've even asked some of the old timers up here where I live, and they've never heard of it.
