Question about Whitney lake

Thinking of heading into west Canada lakes area this week and I’m wondering about Whitney lake. I know there’s no leanto, but I’m wondering if the second circled spur trail actually goes to the lake edge with a camping spot? I would like to visit Whitney and Sampson lake but I’m trying to figure out if that backtrack is necessary.

That second spur is a little difficult to locate, but it begins near the old car chassis that is just off the trail. If in doubt just head downhill to where the old Sturges family camp remains are located in your circle. There is an old fire ring just to the east of the old camp remains, but by no means an attractive campsite imho.
