    The hike was actually done in September of 2017, but the calendar above won't let me change to that date. This trail is a difficult to find - we had to rely on the directions of a local since nothing was marked. But once on the trail it was pleasant and except for the lone fisherman we found at the lake, we didn't see a single soul. The hike was relatively flat and not challenging. Well, not challenging until we got to the lake. When we got there, we decided to walk part way around it to eat our lunch on a group of rocks/boulders. The rocks were wet and my husband said to me "be careful" and you can just about guess what happened - I did slip and went into the water. Worse than the embarrassment of falling, was the fact that my day pack somehow got stuck between 2 rocks that were underwater, and I lay there unable to get up - flaying like an upturned turtle. My husband dragged me out, and knowing that I couldn't hike back soaking wet, I stripped and hung my clothes on sunny areas, wearing only my husband's rain jacket while we ate. We laughed all the way back to the car and he immediately violated my demand that he not tell anyone what happened. A very pleasant hike and funny story to remember.

    This is a dry weather trail but we did it after a rain and came out following horse traffic. Very heavy clay soil in the Clay Butte area--dah! made the going very tough. My 2oth trip and the mud over a certain rock caused a knee injury which may not allow future trips but a beauty to be injured on. I got out 7 miles from Swede Lake by going around and over towards Lonesome Lake and Mountain. The Alpine scenery and travel was not difficult for a painful injury to a knee. Do it again. Good fishing too, especially at Martin and Swede.
