Trail was in good condition with one or two sections still covered by a few feet of snow as you climb toward the plateau. Nothing impassible, although, it was a bit hard to follow at times. We camped on the southern end of the lake.

There were quite a few other hikers passing through over the course of the afternoon, including one couple who decided to setup their tent 20 yards from us. Thank you for that. For a more secluded experience push past Blue Lake to anyone of the other countless lakes tucked away in the John Muir Wilderness. The trails beyond will open up in the coming month or so.
