It was not moderate but really good fun. we did it counter clockwise and it is easy to miss the turnoff from the Elsay Lake trail. Lots of talus fields. On a day with a gazillion people hiking Seymour we didnt see anyone on the Elsay Lake and Elsay mountain trails. Due to time we didnt summit Elsay itself but still a nice challenging hike. Took us 6 hours including lots of breaks. I went with my 9 yr old but it was at his limit for a trail. super well marked so a big thanks to whoever taped and set up the hundreds of cairns. Recommend doing Mystery Lake at the start or end to limit the boring gravel ski roads. Four stars only because it is classified at moderate and should be hard in keeping with other ratings.
