The red line shows the trail to Lower Gaylor Lake; the better known trail to the two upper Gaylor Lakes, which starts at Tioga Pass, is drawn in gray at upper right.

The trail skips in and out of view of a stream (the outlet of both Granite Lakes and all three Gaylor Lakes) throughout the first half of the hike before parting from it for most of the second mile and then finally rejoining the western branch of it near the lake. It should be visible on the map if you zoom in one level.
