Hike out to Barclay was nice and easy, after reading both the description of this trail on trails.com and the WTA site I didn't expect finding the trailhead to eagle or stone lake to be hard... My friend and I searched a good 20 minutes around the area where the trail abruptly ended and had no such luck. Once we reached the lake we continued along the path for a good 15 minutes until the path clearly ended. Wish we had found the rest of the hike!
We hiked all the way to eagle lake and the incline after barclay lake is pretty gnarly. there was snow about 1/8 of a mile from stone lake and then all through paradise meadow until eagle lake. cabin is rad. snow pack was crusty enough to walk on without snowshoes but would be nice.
About 20 minute drive up the ridgeline to the trailhead. Pretty steep at the beginning of the trail, then it evens out. Nice meadow before Eagle lake. Gnats were crazy once we set up camp.
No snow at Barclay lake but once you start climbing there was lots of snow. It is a beautiful hike and i dont know what jason is talkign about he must have been on the wrong trail. One of the better day hikes in the area.
