We hiked this route after a week of late summer rains - so take it seriously when the author says there are wet spots! I also believe that the distance is understated - we hike at a brisk pace of around 3 MPH and this route took us nearly 2 hours!

There is also an error in the instructions - in the paragraph starting "At the southwest corner of the lake", the right turn for trail 7 is BEFORE you cross the footbridge!

This was a nice hike - would be good for families, as it wasn't real strenuous!
