Great day hike. Awesome views. A few switchbacks early in the hike. Bring water. A few mosquitoes, but the breeze kept them moving.

Great moderate hike! We had to use deet because of mosquitoes. But still well worth the hike.

I took the Emerald Lake Trail over to Skeleton Lake and then up to Barney Lake. On my way back to the car I went down towards Arrowhead Lake. Easy, beautiful hike with some snowy patches once you get past Skeleton Lake. Some people were continuing up Duck Pass. More snow in that direction but looks totally doable.
