Was a most awesome hike, and the perfect weather to do it. Most interesting yo find out that all the campsites beyond the gate at Lindsey campgrounds on up past Rock Lakes are free to stay at. Many of the sites are overlooking the Lakes and shaded!

Started from Bowman Road, so ended up waking mostly on a gravel road, through a campground and past a couple homes. The middle mile, at the lakes, was much better and off the road. About 1/3 of the way was shaded, and the flies were terrible. I probably won't do this trail again, but might make my way to the lakes via some of the other trails in the area.
