Jun 26, 2011This is perhaps the most interesting low-elevation trail that I have done. There are very old and giant trees and perhaps the trail offers how forests looked like 1000s years ago. The trail is steep but there are many supporting ropes. I found the area more beautiful with snow cover.
The conditions seemed right to continue to Elsay Lake. It was perhaps good to do Mount Bishop as well. But it was too late to do any of them. I spent an hour hanging by the lakes and it was hard to leave.
There is new a blowdown on the trail but it was not difficult to by pass it. Snow started at 900m. The gate to Spur 4 Bridge was closed but I passed it from the side without a problem but I am not sure if this was allowed or not.
Total trip took 8:30 hours: 1:45 hour biking, 1 hour break, and 5:45 hours hiking.
