Mitchell and Blue lakes are gorgeous and the section of the trail extending that area is moderate and well maintained. This review isn’t regarding that section of the trail. Above Blue Lake the trail is almost immediately lost in a boulder field. The rocks are unstable and the picking through is very slow going. As far as I could tell the rocky terrain continues the rest of the way up Toll, but I had to turn around due to a previous wrist injury I was overusing among the boulders. Very few cairns were the only signs of use in the area.

After reading this guide I was excited to hike and camp this trail... however, it is HIGHLY inaccurate. There is NO CAMPING (except $21 car camping next to others) - there is also an $11 fee just to get into the park.

I would recommend updating your "guide" to reflect the camping specifics (as well as the entry fee) and also the fact that this is a HIGHLY TRAFFICKED trail... we had to wait an HOUR to even get into the park as the lot was full.

We ended up driving a few miles down the road to South Saint Vrain Trailhead, much more secluded, FREE , dog friendly and backcountry camping allowed.
