Comments: One tough trail. First hike i've been on that felt like uphill both ways. Nice hike up to Lonesome Lake. Beautiful spot, and nice hut. Fishin' Jimmy Trail not so much fun. Damp feeling with lots of moss on everything. A few nice waterfall's. Steep rock scrambles. Some with steps cut in, some with steps attached. Ladders and metal rungs. A little bit of everything. Some with nothing but trees and your ingenuity to conquer. A very rocky hike. 10 miles with very little flat. No real place to stride out. It didn't help that we got rained on 3 times and hailed on twice. Sun at both peaks though! Fighting rocks, water and mud most of the way reduced the enjoyment.
