Hike into Dardenelles Lake and continue around to the northwest side crossing a man made dam to get to the peninsula of granite where you can camp. The second day, set out a course for Round Lake which will take you on an extreme back country tour. End up on the north shore of Round Lake- from here the trail back to Dardanelles is pretty easy.

Great hike, clear trail markings and a beautiful area you can use to hop in for a swim.
