This is an awesome trail but I think the author is a little short on the milage I would figure another mile and half. I doubt that you can make it in less than three hours. It has everything you expect in this rugged country. There is a half mile of talus slope on the side of Mount Elwell. I would suggest you opted to got to Long Lake and return via Bear Lakes or go by Silver and Round Lakes. You have better views of the lakes and the country. Don't get me wrong if you have the time certainly I would do it but if your time is short in the area I suggest the alternates.
