Begin by heading south out of Deep Creek Campground, hiking through a couple of wide switchbacks to crest the ridge. Hiking above the creek on the mountainside, it's not too far before you reach the lakes. While the trail skirts one of the shores, there is a trail between them if you want to check out the larger of the two lakes to the west.
Keep heading roughly south past the lake, keeping right where the Sand Ridge Trail intersects. The trail is fairly level until you reach the base of Tumac. The trail up is very straightforward. From the summit, you’ll simply retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
