This winter we're planning to spend several days skiing Dick's Peak while camping at Dick's Lake so we decided to go place a small cache near the campsite. For this trip we decided to leave from Bayview Trailhead and return via Eagle Falls Trailhead. This would leave us with the world's shortest car shuttle at the end. Right out the car at Bayview the trail (road at this point) heads straight up about 800 vertical feet to Granite Lake. From there it's another 600 vertical feet until you escape from Maggie's Peaks. After that it's a beautiful stroll pretty much all the way to Dick's Lake. We decided to head back via Fontanillis Lake and the Velmas. After spending some time at Fontanillis Lake (which is one of the Sierra's most beautiful), we followed the drainage which slides down the rocks to Upper Velma. After that it was a long downhill back to Eagle Falls trailhead with some beautiful fall colors along the way.
