Date(s) Hiked: 07-18-2008

Trails(s) Hiked: Lake Road & then the short trail towards Elk Pass & then Colvin & Blake (trails 40, part of 55 & 56)

Total Distance: approx 14.85 miles

Difficulty: first & last parts pretty easy, the trip up Colvin moderately difficult some spots in the Blake, Colvin Col difficult

Conditions: muddy, especially between the two peaks. (While the report is two weeks old, it's been a pretty wet two weeks & conditions should be similar)

Special Required Equipment: bug dope, clothes you don't mind getting muddy

Trip Report: Hot & humid day with thunder in the distance & hazy views in the few spots where they exist. View from Colvin better than I expected it. I could be talked into doing Colvin again, can't see a reason to venture towards Blake again though. It did have a bit of a view.
