I have been backpacking into Weaver and Jennie Lakes for the past fifteen years. The trip to Weaver is a mild hike with an elevation change of 800-1000 feet over 2-3 miles. The fishing is very good. There are several campsites spread around the lake. The water, while cold, is suitable for swimming. Expect day hikers and stock animals at any time. Temperatures are mild. Jennie Lake is a strenuous six to nine mile hike over aptly named "Poop-out Pass" but worth the extra effort. It is the big brother to Weaver in all aspects. Larger lake, larger fish, fewer folks. I use this area as a shakedown hike for my first year scouts and young children.
