Late July 2017, parked at Mosquito Lake and backpacked to Heiser Lake with a group of nine people. The trail was hard to find at first, and is easy to lose at some points along the way. There were many felled trees blocking the trail, but on our hike back we saw rangers clearing them. We stayed a couple nights at Heiser Lake. Great for swimming, and plenty of interesting areas to explore around the lake.
