    Took the hike in March 2017. Beautiful clear day. Only down side was the 100’s or other people. We counted over 100 at the end of the hike at Hooker Lake. Bus loads are brought in and dropped off. Other than that, Fabulous hike!!! FYI, the track has been moved so you come in on the southeast corner of the lake now. There are 3 bridges to cross.
