    Jamison Mine Trailhead to jamison Lake, Wade lake, Mt Elwell and back . 3800' elevation gain, approx 15 miles. 2 nights on trail. No people at Jamison. Great little island to jump in lake and fish from. Fish feeding on stonefly hatch at dusk. Wade lake has bette campsites and a great little grass beach with sand like gravel near the big campsite. Mt Elwell is reached via sweeping vistas on steep switchbacks. The reward are great views from the easy to reach peak and snow patches to lie down in.

    This was an OK hike. Rock Lake was disappointing because there were no fish there. Jamison looked better for fishing but was too crowded to get a site. A few days in the outdoors is never a bad thing but I will look for another location next time.

    Very beautiful, short but steep hike - unfortunately too many people. We had a few people hike straight through our camp site on Saturday. Mid-week there are less people but we did see several backpackers hiking in Sunday afternoon.

    This was a difficult trail and never should have been rated easy. The scenery was absolutly beautiful once we made the gain, but several people were on the trail bowing out at the very beginning. We had a nice stay at grass lake. The campsite was secluded and nice. The rest of the time, we dayhiked to the other lakes. All in all, I think this trail was more then easy...
