Left from Highline Trailhead on Friday. Had 4 riders and 4 Pack animals. Trail was very busy. Lots of folks coming out. Took 3.5 hours to get to Dale and Daynes lake. Trail is very rocky in spots, but has lots of improvements. Signs are pretty good, but you need to have done the prior planning as the trails to side lakes can fool you. While the guide books say there is not much elevation gain in the net between Trail head and basin,do not be foole there is quite a bit of up and down. 4 lakes basin was well populated with campers (horse and hikers) but this is big country so plenty of room. Everyone was courteous and pleasant. Area around Dale and Daynes was boggy, but NO BUGS due to night time temps. Had a good time and returned next day. Beautiful views and super ride!
