6-9-18 and 6-10-18. Did this as a 2 day hike adding 1 mile from Dollar Saddle to High Springs Meadow. There was water but it was a trickle. The flowers were in Bloom from the trail head to the South Fork. Very delightful. Dollar Lake Trail is less delightful, and more of a slog (with the back pack), gaining 1800 feet up to Dollar Saddle. Lots of areas with burnt out pines. Past the saddle, the trail to the Summit is gradual and I enjoyed the walking. Should go without saying that the views at the top are superb!
