Three mountain lakes with excellent scenery, and a shuttle hike.

If you are camping at Summit Lake Campground, you can have someone drive you to the upper trailhead.  And decadently enjoy an almost entirely downhill hike back to your campsite.

Or you can drop your own bicycle at the upper trailhead, drive back to the lower trailhead.  And hike up, then coast back down the highway on your bicycle.

Other variations may come to mind.
