Did this trail yesterday (5.27) up to lake verna. Had tons of family traffic up to the inlet, but after that I saw maybe 10 people all day. The trail winds it’s way up to the lakes but has a gorgeous river that parallels the trail the majority of the way up, making it impossible for you to run out of water. Lone Pine Lake is where you start seeing some snow on the ground, and you sort of have to wade here and there through previous post holes, so I would definitely recommend waterproof boots until early June. First time doing the inlet trail, won’t be the last.
